Lt Col Robert Herbert Mills-Roberts FRCS (Edinburgh) CMG TD and later JP, who commanded the 131st Field Ambulance, had a particularly interesting career.
As the senior Field Ambulance commander of the Welsh Division he often acted for the ADMS when the latter was on leave. A Welsh international footballer, Mills-Roberts kept goal for Preston North End in the season in which they lost no matches and conceded no goals in the final. (Not until 2004 was this unbeaten performance equalled by Arsenal FC.) Author of several medical papers, he was surgeon of the Dinorwic Hospital and Quarries before the War and Deputy Commissioner for Medical Services in North Wales and Shropshire afterwards.  
He had served with the Welsh Hospital in South Africa and later, from 1906 to 1915, was second-in-command of the 6th Royal Welsh Fusiliers. He then reverted to a medical role, commanding first the 131st FA and later the 41st Stationary Hospital. In having experience of both fighting and medical units, Mills-Roberts resembled Lt Col John McCrae RCAMC, author of the well-.known poem 'In Flanders Fields'.

MILLS-ROBERTS, ROBERT HERBERT (1862-1935), surgeon, and association football player; b. 5 Aug. 1862 at Ffestiniog, son of Robert Roberts, surgeon — it was a notable medical family, for Mills-Roberts's father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, cousin, and two great-great-uncles were all medical practitioners — see the ‘Isallt’ pedigree in J. E. Griffith, Pedigrees, 359. From the University College at Aberystwyth, he went up to S. Thomas's Hospital and qualified in 1887, becoming F.R.C.S. (Edin.) in 1893. When the South African War broke out, Mills-Roberts, then surgeon to the Llanberis quarry hospital, joined A. W. Hughes (q.v.) at the Welsh Hospital in South Africa, was mentioned in dispatches, and became C.M.G. He also served in the 1914-19 war. It is, however, possible that he will be more widely remembered as a player of association football. He played for his hospital and for the Corinthians, and also for Wales. He kept goal for Preston North End in 1888-89, like his compatriot, James Trainer (q.v.), replacing Trainer in the English cup ties — the club had not one goal scored against it in those ties. He d. 27 Nov. 1935.
Left winger Alfred Oliver was born in Bangor on September 15, 1882, and except for the 1905/06 season (Blackburn Rovers) played for Bangor FC from 1903 to 1914, but only twice for Wales, in 1905.
At the age of 11, he had stayed with his grandfather at Min y Don (Anglesey), where he attended the Beaumaris Grammar School. After World War I, Alfred Oliver still played for Llandegfan and worked in the construction business. He died in Glyn Garth (Menai Bridge, Anglesey) on March 29, 1963.
His son Glyn Oliver was an aerospace designer in the USA, where he also worked on Project Apollo (moon landing).

When Wales beat Ireland 5:2 in Shrewsbury on February 8, 1890, outside right David Moral Lewis (born in February 1871) was one of the scorers. ”Dai” David Lewis later went to South Africa, where he served in the South African Defence Force during World War I. He fell ill during his trip back to England, returned to South Africa and died in Durban on November 16, 1925, at the age of 54.
