Lord Chelmsford Said .Buller is ‘one of the finest soldiers of the century’, so modest and reticent –that it was difficult to say for what individual deed he had got the Victoria Cross as he had been doing acts worthy of it all along the line

Hello all,

Just to let the forum know that plans are well under way to provide the unmarked grave of 1409 Pte David Lloyd, 'B' Coy 2/24th Regiment with a new headstone in Aberdare cemetery, south Wales.

http://aberdareonline.co.uk/news/rhondda-cynon-taff/unmarked-rorkes-drift-grave-aberdare

Having contacted a few local media outlets, I have been fortunate enough to have had a response from the Aberdare branch of the Royal Welsh Veterans' Association who have shown a fantastic interest in lending support; as a result of their efforts, funding has been secured and I will keep the forum updated with regard to any further news.

Regards,

Tim

I'm pleased to report that a date of Saturday 29th September has been set for the rededication event for David Lloyd at Aberdare cemetery, beginning at 1000.

All arrangements for the new headstone & ceremony have been taken on by Phil Roberts and the Aberdare branch of the RWelsh Veterans' Association, I'm sure members of the forum will join me in congratulating them on their efforts so far!

Regards,

Tim
