    I have the Victory medal to 10434 Pte., A.F. Abbey, Royal Welsh Fusillers on the way to me, not done much research yet, but I could not even found his MIC. He is not on the CWGC so I assume he survived the war.

    He is on two casualty lists dated 14 5 1918 and 11 11 1918 though usually these are circa 4-6 weeks after the events happened.

    Through the regimental forum Tony, they have their own forum for ex members and those with an interest in the RWF. The museum is involved as are many of the authors who publish on the regiment and many ex members and between them they have access to material that cannot normally be found.

    Thanks Steve. I had already noticed them and he was recommended for a VC, but they all seem a bit pricey for what they are so I doubt I will be bidding on them.
