Hi All

This Medal is listed on Ebay at the moment.

I will post more about William Pike after the sale of the Medal as I do not want to add value to the Medal.
Please keep your reseach to yourself until after the sale.

PostSubject: Thanks re: W.Wellford A.H.C.   Sat Jun 15, 2013 6:36 pm

Cheers Gentlemen,
That's given a little bit more info. to research on. It has narrowed down the field of research a fair bit.
Brilliant. I am wondering if his personnel file, attestation papers etc. might still be accessible to the public.
Any thoughts on where to find any documentation per chance?
Kind regards, and thanks again,
