Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi,
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr,
gwladgarwyr tra mâd,
Dros ryddid collasant eu gwaed.
Gwlad, gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad,
Tra mor yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O budded i'r hen iaith barhau.

The land of my fathers, the land of my choice,
The land in which poets and minstrels rejoice;
The land whose stern warriors were true to the core,
While bleeding for freedom of yore.
Wales, Wales, favorite land of Wales!
While sea her wall, may naught befall
To mar the old language of Wales.

|Embry-Riddle developed two air fields, Carlstrom and Dorr, near Arcadia,
Florida to train pilots before the United States entered World War II.
Many Royal Air Force cadets attended basic training at these two facilities as
well as more advanced training at the air field in Clewiston. Twenty-three
cadets died during training, some in flight and others in vehicular accidents.
They are buried at Arcadia's Oak Ridge Cemetery along with a monument for
John Paul Riddle in a plot purchased by the British government.
Every year since 1957, the Arcadia Rotary Club holds a commemoration
ceremony on Memorial Day.
