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."

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.
