Ah, the Welsh Dragon! The flag of Wales; land of my fathers! Well, that is part of the national anthem of Wales and technically, land of my grandfather, Thomas Evans. Thomas came to Canada with friends and then returned to the UK once they had purchased the land they had set out for. Again, the men returned to Western Canada with their families to settle.
Land of my Fathers
The land of my fathers is dear unto me,
Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau
Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
