    Thank You Jerry. The guy had one hell of a service career. Will be doing further research into him for sure.

    Indeed, some of them served a long time and got around a lot. I have a service book for one soldier who served with the Welch regiment from 1919 to 1931, seeing action in Waziristan and then rejoined in 1940 and served with the Cheshire and Kings regiments before ending up in the Royal Welch Fusiliers until wars end.

    Crikey! Certainly had a colorful life then! I bet that medal set would be a sight for sore eyes!
