    Here are my WW I groups so far - these are overviews, generally I have heaps of research and documentation on each group. Somehow they ae all in one post but basically in associated order with each different group.

    Capt. Parke 20 Bn CEF, for actions in enemy trenches during a battalion scale raid in feb 1917. I have the war diary account.

    Stunning groups, great to see them.

    I have added another single to my collection, unusually not for one of the Welsh regiments, but the surname was of interest.

    British War Medal, Worcester Regiment. 30400 Acting Corporal, L.N. Bond Worcester Reg.

    Not seen his mic or any other records yet and it is yet to arrive.
    It arrived and I downloaded his MIC from the national archives at Kew.

    Interestingly he spent some time with the Chinese Labour Corps, which was fairly commonly done.

ID:	727453My modest collection of medals is primarily focused on the Grenadier Guards. These are the only photos I have, and include a 1914 Star & bar trio, and a BWM & VM pair. Also, there is a miniature MC group to Lt. D.H. Riddiford, 1st Battn. Grenadier Guards, that includes a silver engraved photo locket.
    I really wanted a trio to an " Old Contemptible".
