    Default Great-Great Grand Father Great War Bring Back

    Hi

    Sadly my Great Grandmother pasted away just before Christmas and my family are in the process of distributing her belongs between the family.

    Well the other day I got a phone call form my Grandfather who said he had found something that I might be interested in (Knowing that I collect militaria). He said that they were sorting through a box of locks and bolts and at the bottom was a medal. I asked if he could describe it and he described in detail a EK2! So today my mum is going to pick it up on the way back from some friends and I will take some pictures when it arrives.

    We have are suspicions that the relative which brought it back was my Great-Great Grand Farther, Alfred Charles Henderson, who served as a Dvr with the RASC during World War One. (His son married my Great Grandmother). As he served behind the lines supporting the cavalry, I have two ideas of how he might have come across it.

    Got it from a prisoner sent back to our lines.

    Traded with a member of the infantry coming back from the front lines. This, in my opinion, is the most probable.

    Thanks

    Sorry to hear about your Great Grandmother Cameron, never an easy time to lose someone.

    Good news in a funny way though that you have the opportunity to get something from her and with a potential family link to your Great Great Grandfather. Those things are always the best to have.

    Hi

    Thank you Adrian, we knew she was going but it was still a shock, especially so close to Christmas....

    Though as you say, it might be one of the only links I will ever have to my Great-Great Grand Father as te only other items I have is a small photograph.

    Hi

    Thank you Ralph, I am planing to make a little display to honor my Great-Great Grand Father so the EK2 will be the centerpiece.

    Hi

    Unfortunately it turned out to be an extremely poor cast biker cross.

    Thanks

    Sorry to hear that Cameron.
    The excitement of receiving something from a past family member is surely a high point.

    It's always nice to have something like this
    with a family connection.
