Remembered Today:

Tudor Foulkes HUGHES


Recommended Posts

Dear Forum,

I Hi Mavis,[/size] I know it is strange that Tudor is not in the index cards for Flintshire men. I don't know which regiment he enlisted with in Rhyl for WWI - only that the memorials and newspaper articles show Princess Patricia Light Infantry (which is a Canadian regiment "normally called Princess Patricia Canadian Light Infantry") which his British regiment must have merged with during the war. Tudor Foulkes Hughes enlisted in Rhyl and served for sixteen months in South Africa (Boar War of 1899 - 1902) with the First Service Company of the Royal Welch Fusiliers formed of the three Volunteer Battalions of Flint, Caernarvon and Denbigh.

Tudor Ffoulkes Hughes was never in Canada. He was born in Rhyl, enlisted in Rhyl for the South-African War and again for World War I. The reason it is confusing is that he was with the Princess Patricia Light Infantry during World War I. Whatever regiment he enlisted with in Wales merged with the PPLI when overseas (which apparently was not uncommon). [/font]
