From the Labour Voice newspaper, 5th November 1921 :-

A photogravure of the memorial recently unveiled at Lloyds Bank by Sir Richard Vasser, president of the bank, to members who fell in the Great War has been presented to each local branch. One has been received by the local branch at Ystalyfera and when framed will be hung in the office. It will be interesting to note that the memorial contains one local name the late Mr Llew B Elsmere, eldest son of Mr and Mrs Elsmere, late of Alltygrug Road who was killed in action. Any relatives of the fallen whose names are inscribed on this memorial may have one of these photogravures by applying through the local branch.
