  • My great grandfather fought in WW1 as a Rifleman. He fought in Egypt and Western Europe and was discharged from the army on 26/11/1918. He later died on the 16th of June, 1964. He served our country for 3 years and 182 days and was overseas for 2 years and 249 days. Before the war he was a humble farmer. He enlisted in the army on the 29/05/15. His service number was 23/767. While he was abroad, his medals were stolen from him so we have no idea how many he actually won, but we do know that he won at least three; The 1914-15 star, The British War Medal, and The Victory Medal. I know no one will probably see this, but thank you for fighting in the war for our country.
