D company (MG) 2nd Welch Regiment

Recommended Posts

A very good though slightly damaged group photograph of the 14th platoon of D (MG) company of the 2nd battalion the Welch regiment, dating to circa 1928-32 when they were in India.  It is marked India at the top and has the names and ranks of most of the members, all OR's and NCO's and shows two Vickers machine guns, interestingly marked 1 & 2.  Oddly all the Lance corporals are marked as Lt.  They all appear to be wearing the curved Welch shoulder title and the Nco's are wearing an arm brassard showing their rank.  All are wearing Garter flashes on their socks.

After 14 months without a comment this attracts a like.  I do wonder why I bother sometimes as obviously most of what I collect has little or no interest to most here.

I just stumbled on this one Jerry and i think it's a great photo and i'm glad you brought it up again.With the names on the bottom,a little history treasure IMO.

 

My grandfather was in India at about the same time in the RA up north.

 

Keep 'em coming.

Jerry,

 

Do know that you are the one who made me interested in The Welsh / The Welch with your great Welsh threads, postings and a lot of information.

 

I can only say to you that I did miss this post completely my friend.

 

Nice photo and even better to have the names of those men to go with it.

 

Thanks for showing.

 

Best regards

 

Eric-Jan
