  1. Named incorrectly, (what you get if you buy your garments from a London tailors with a Welsh surname) to David Reginald Llewellyn 24th regiment and dated 22/6/32 and he was gazetted 2nd Lt in Sept 1932. He was serving as a Captain with the 1st Bn SWB when he died in Irag in Nov 1941. His father also served with the SWB, Colonel William Herbert Clydwyn llewellyn and his brother was also KIA, he died on Dday with the RA, and he was also a captain and is buried in France. http://www.london-gazette.co.uk/issues/33860/pages/5623 http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/2717790/LLEWELLYN,%20DAVID%20REGINALD
  2. A recent pick up, I think this type of item were made from before and during the great war up and into the interwars period, perhaps as late as WWII, I don't know as I have yet to find out much on them. I have seen others over the years and got this one from ebay and it seems to match the other examples I have seen in terms of construction etc including the dotted image! i hav enot seen any fakes of these, yet and hopefully I never will. .
  3. Picked up today was his British War medal, and his MIC notes he was 1/1st Bn of the SW Borderers which was the 1st line battalion of the Brecknockshires Territorial bn of the regiment as the first Bn of the Bords was known as 1/SWBords and not 1st/1st. His low number and the fact he was renumbered also backs this up. I no longer have ancestry so I cannot find out if any of his papers other than his MIC have survived.
  4. A recent find and not something I have seen before though following research I found another example and also a paper version with the same design. It is a framed ceramic plaque commemorating one of the fallen of the Great War, a Private William Williams of the South Wales Borderers. It is a beautiful but sad reminder of his death in the service of his country. Sadly there were 19 Private William Williams who fell whilst serving with the SWB, so it is impossible to find out which one he was without any more information than I have, though it was bought local to me but came from an old collection, so it could have been from anywhere in Wales or the UK. The design shows that the main plaque was produced as a blank pro forma and the individuals details are added as a separate part of the process. It must have been expensive to buy at the time and as so few survive, being made of fine china they must have often been broken and it is not known to me how many were made, it is probably a rare survivor from that period.
