Rwf 14/15 Star Trio Jones B L/cpl Rwf 1St Bn Casualty

Recommended Posts

Great war 14/15 star trio for 17672 Jones B, 1st Bn RWF when he was wounded by a gunshot in the arm on the first day of the battle of loos, 25th September 1915.  He was from my part of Wales near Cardiff and was an engine driver when he enlisted in November 1914.  As happens sometimes, his full pension/service papers survive which gives lots of details about him, height, hair colour, next of kin, units he served with, rank etc......  He was a lance corporal with the 5th home service Bn on his discharge in 1917 as unfit for active service because of his gun shot wound.

 

It will take a few posts to get it all up.
