[Spellyans] war gamm

The concise online version of Geiriadur Prifysgol Cymru has:

ar y cam, ar gam at a foot-pace, at a walking pace [not well known in Modern Welsh]

ar gam in error, erroneously, unjustly, falsley, astray, amiss [this is well known]

ar y cam in the wrong, culpable

Nothing about going backwards.

Breton uses a preposition+possessive construction with kis backwards, returning: dond war ma c’his come back, return.

Any examples of war ow ham, war y gam, etc.?

In Geiriadur yr Academi I can only find ‘ar gam’ meaning
-       wrongly
-       wrongful
-       unfairly
-       unjustly
-       mistakenly

with ‘yn gam’ for
-       awry

I can also see
-       steady pace: camre cyson (cyson=steady, regular)

Nothing under Walk, Walking, Pace, Stride (cam), Steady/Steadily etc.

Then all the head words are English and it’s a very big book to search!

I have never come across 'ar gam' meaning 'at a walking pace'
