    hi adrian and thanks for your interest ,yes my great grandad albert conde fought alonside the gurkhas against the turks in gallipoli he was in the royal welch fusiliers but which division i cant remember ,but as a child i use to enjoy hearing all his tales of his time there ,some of the songs he used to sing i can still recall now ,sarah fena i think thats how you pronounce it was one of his favorites and during ww2 as he was too old to fight he became a sargeant in the local home guard regards james
