    Default Welsh regiment Victory medal

    I picked this one up a while back but never started a thread on it. A Victory medal to Private William Lewis of the Welsh Regiment, who later transferred to the Labour Corps, so I assume he was wounded. Number for the Welsh which is marked on the medal is 27768 and for the Labour Corps is 224767. I got a copy of his IMC with it which shows he was entitled to a pair and not a trio. Sadly his MIC does not show where and when he first served, though probably post 1915 as he was not entitled to a star medal.

    Sadly I cannot find a service record for him.

    Thanks for trying Ade. I know for many all that can be found is the MIC, whilst for others quite full records can be found it is seems to be a bit of luck either way.
