Thomas Williams, born in Penmachno in 1886, was working as a tailor in Colwyn Bay when the First World War broke out. Tom enlisted in the Liverpool Scottish Regiment on 21 November 1915 and left for France on 9 April 1916. He was injured in the foot in August 1916 and sent back to England for treatment. This postcard was sent to Tom’s sister, Kate, from Ashton-under-Lyne on 30 September 1916. The message reads ‘Annwyl Oll Eich garedig lythyr i law, da oedd gennyf ei gael a chael ar ddeall eich bod wedi cael y cynhaeaf, hefyd ei fod yn dda. Yr wyf yn edrych ymlaen am ddod yna yr wythnos nesaf, dod ymlaen y dda yma. Nid oes gennyf eisiau dim ac rwyf yn wir ddiolchgar i chwi am eich caredigrwydd. Cofion fyrdd, Tom”. The main point in the above is that he is getting on well and looking forward to come to stay next week.
