NAWF supports launch of The Welsh Warrior Through the Ages
Jonathan Morgan’s latest book, The Welsh Warrior Through the Ages, was fittingly launched at the Firing Line, the Museum of the Welsh soldier at Cardiff Castle last week.
The NAWF co-hosted the event, subsidising music from three talented young musicians from the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Part of the evening’s proceeds went to the Foundation.
The book charts the history of the Welsh Warrior from Celtic times, takes in the archers who fought alongside the English Edward I against the Scots and celebrates the proliferation of gallantry awards acquired by Welshmen through the ages. It includes a foreword by Lord Ashcroft KCMG PC, who describes it as inspirational and long-overdue.
The evening attracted many high profile attendees including Guy Clarke, Secretary of the Cardiff Business Club; Professor Dan Davies, Head of Education at Cardiff Met University; Professor Brian Morgan of Cardiff Met University; Dan Clayton-Jones, Prior of St Johns; Hugh Phillips, former High Sheriff of Glamorgan; Chris Williams, Chairman of Crawshays Rugby Club; and Stephen Thomas, Secretary of WEA.
Published by Cambria Books, The Welsh Warrior Through the Ages is available in paperback or eBook form from Amazon and other bookshops.
