For Freedom and For Empire – EventsnWales

For Freedom and For Empire

“If the men of Arfon choose to shelter beneath the mountains of Snowdonia, and therefore neglect their duty, then they will eternally lose the prime ideal of Nationalism-namely the opportunity to fight for freedom and for Empire…”

These are the words of Canon R.T.Jones, Bethesda in 1914. It’s often assumed that all communities and industries across Wales responded enthusiastically to the recruitment campaign which preceded conscription. This exhibition looks at responses in the slate quarrying communities of Wales, exploring if and why these communities found it difficult to respond.
