Corporal James Frowen Williams F Company.
|Subject: James Frowen Williams Wed Jul 21, 2010 10:44 am|| |
Can anyone tell me what Regiment this man belonged to please? He was mentioned in the obituary for Pt John Jobbins.
"As the coffin was borne from the house to the hearse, the firing party brought their rifles to the “present” and afterward to the reverse. Sgt-Major C. Norman D.C.M., was in charge with Sgt J Roberts. There was a representative gathering of the British Legion Organisations. Mr James Frowen Williams [Zulu war Veteran] was also present together with Mr W. H. Roberts from Bargoed. A large crowd assembled at the graveside, where full military honours were accorded the departed veteran, and floral tributes were laid."

Private F. Williams, RM, RN HMS Euphrates
Private F. Williams, 2nd 21st Royal Scots Fusiliers
Private F. Williams, Army Service Corps (Transport)
Private F. Williams, Royal Durban Rifles
Lieutenant F. Williams, Diamond Fields Horse.
I hope this helps

Bookworm. You have started something here. I have just had a message from Littlehand, who is busy searching for this Chap. I have spent a couple of hours. Nil result. (But we will continue the search)

Thanks for trying, I had thought that with the distinctive middle name it might be easy to find something but I had the same result, nil.

james frowen williams was a long relative of mine, my father as the same middle name, frowen... i have struggled to get much information on him however, but apparently he was out on manouvers when the zulu's attacked, losing his eye in the process. i have photo's of him that i will post when can.
