Clawr blaen Picture Post, 21 Medi 1940.

[delwedd: Cylchgrawn COAL o Bwrdd Glo Cenedlaethol]

Cylchgrawn COAL a gynhyrchwyd gan y Bwrdd Glo Cenedlaethol o fis Mai 1947 ymlaen. Newidiwyd yr enw'n ddiweddarach i COAL NEWS.

Mae'r cylchgrawn Glo ar gael ar Rhagor.

Seiliwyd arddull GLO ar y cylchgrawn ffotonewyddiaduraeth Picture Post, ac mae hefyd yn cydweddu â Ffrynt Cartref, cylchgrawn gwych Sain Ffagan oedd yn cofio bywyd Cymreig yn ystod yr Ail Ryfel Byd.

Mae Glo hefyd yn debyg i COAL, cylchgrawn y Bwrdd Glo Cenedlaethol, a gyhoeddwyd am y tro cyntaf ym 1947.

Gellid disgrifio Glo orau fel cylchgrawn 'hanes pobl'; gwahoddir pobl i gyfrannu eu barn, delweddau a phrofiadau ar pwnc arbennig.

Mae detholiad o straeon a delweddau o'r cylchgrawn ar gael ar Rhagor fel erthyglau unigol; mae pob un ohonynt yn cysylltu'n ôl i'r rhifyn perthnasol.

Y rhifynnau a gyhoeddwyd eisoes yw:

  1. 'Bois Bevan' - consgripsiwn i'r pyllau glo yn ystod yr Ail Ryfel Byd
  2. 'NC-Bloody-B' - gwladoli'r diwydiant glo
  3. 'Pwyliaid Pob Un?' - gweithwyr estron ym meysydd glo Cymru
  4. 'Streic!' - Streic y Glowyr 1984/5
  5. Gweithwyr Glo
  6. Y Gogledd-ddwyrain: Maes glo angof?
  7. Cadw'r Olwyn i Droi
  8. Pwll Mawr

Mae'r cylchgronnau ar gael i'w lawrlwytho isod.

Hello, not sure if this will work but I am writing my dissertation on the miners' strike predominantly in S. Wales questioning whether Welsh Miners' were treated any differently to the English/ Scottish miners'? I am looking at the relationship between Plaid and the miners' and the help received from different groups of society.

I therefore wondered whether anyone would be able to talk about this/knew anyone who may be helpful?

my email address is victoria.solomon50@gmail.com

I realise there have been no new comments in a while but thought I would at least try.

Thank you!

I know Paul on the back cover of the strike magazine he and my father were on strike at the same time.I remember my father saying he left the pit to work in the Rogerstone aluminium works but went back to the pit because of the comradeship which was very high and everyone had to work together as there lives were at risk working underground . Paul as i remember was a keen
fly angler he sold some trout to my mother.

I have recently been lent a hard copy of GLO2 about the Bevin Boys and was delighted to find a downloadable version. My father Dennis was a Bevin Boy at Gilfach Goch and to cut a long story short, by the power of the internet, I have just made contact with the daughter of the family with whom he lodged in 1944. I still have yet to meet her and her family but we already seem to be regular correspondents, including my 82 year old mother.

I will be returning Jackie's hard copy of GLO2 to her. I think she finds it as fascinating as I do and hop she hasn't missed it too much while I've been soaking it up.

Three very interesting magazines. I will be mentioning them in the new edition of 'My Ancestor was a Coalminer' (due 2009), but why no link directly from the Big Pit site? It was only by chance that I found them!
