Following the birth of Roald Dahl's younger sister Else, the Dahl family move to Ty Mynydd, a large Victorian farmhouse at Radyr, a village just outside Cardiff, Wales. Roald remembered Ty Mynydd in Boy as "a mighty house with turrets on its roof and with majestic lawns and terraces all around it."

In November 1918 the First World War ends in victory for the Allies.
