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 captured by the Germans on 30 November 1917 at Honnecourt, having been shot in his left thigh. He was interred at Minden PoW camp. After his release at the end of the war he sent this postcard to his sister, Kate, on 16 December 1918, from Enschede in the Netherlands. The message reads "Dear All, Arrived here yesterday (Holland) and very probably will be in England in a few days. Pleased to say that I am in the pink. Tom".
