    I also from the same source found a picture of his gravestone in Belgium. The chapel yard where he is buried is just outside New Quay and I drove past it the other day when I went to look at the town memorial.

    Hi John,

    I had not seen that, thank you very much for the link and for taking the time to find it, much appreciated. I will visit the site and take my own pictures of his parents gravestone. This might explain why he is not on the town memorial.
    glad to be of help !

    I visited his parents grave today to take a picture and whilst there the grave was being tended by his brothers granddaughter and her husband, who it was had sold the medal and plaque. It had been sat in a draw for years and they were glad to know it had gone to someone who cared and will remember and honour their relative. she seemed near to tears whilst we were talking so I took my picture and left them in peace.

    The inscription is in Welsh and he is in the middle of the stone.

    A strange coincidence that they were there tending the grave when I arrived.
