World War One Veterans voices: Leonard J Ounsworth
Remembrance Day this year has special resonance as it also marks the centenary of the early months of World War One.
All the soldiers from Wales who returned are now dead but the stories of those who survived were recorded for the archives of the Imperial War Museum in the 1970s and 1980s.
Here is an extract from Leonard Jesse Ounsworth, a signaller, who served with 124th and 144th heavy batteries of the Royal Garrison Artillery on the Western Front.
He tells of the hostility among soldiers towards Welsh colliers, who arrived at the front shortly before the end of the war, following the miners' strike of 1918.
