Hi Kenny I was referring to the Noble 24th reference which I have ordered. I was aware Thomas was not present from the info you kindly shared . As for RD I trained with the great grandson of John Williams VC .I remember over a couple of pints discussing this he said there were letters but they were dispersed within the family, he was a Bridgend lad. Again thanks for your help

Regards Kyle

One of the difficulties is that any soldier who did not survive the AZW campaign, his documents were not retained; this was also true of those who served only for a short-period - it was only those who were in receipt of an army pension whose documents were retained. Many of the records therefore on 'Forces Records' have the bear minimal of information and of course contain some inaccuracies as you have observed.
