Acting Cpl Arthur Miller 1351 1/1 Brecknock Bn. SWBords

Recommended Posts

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.

Thanks to a friend who downloaded his 14/15 Star and BWM &VM rolls which confirm he was 1/1 Brecknocks Bn of the SW Bords.  They also show he served with the 4th Service Bn of the Bords which would have been in Egypt and Mesopotamia after a spell attached to 18th signals company.

Thanks Jim.  What was very nice was it was in an antiques center display case for £18 and they reduced it to £16 and it was only when I got home that I could discover anything about him and with the for me unusual aspects of him being 1/1 Brecknocks and his 5C service, really all in all made it a great pick up.

Hi Jerry,

 

Seems to me that you made a great purchase and a great deal with that medal.

Congratulations with such a fine catch at the beginning of the year.

Thanks for showing.

 

Best regards

 

Eric-Jan
