Sam's medal card attached. Sorry for quality - had a hard time down sizing this. Has a look at John's but nothing of interest on his.

Hi Auchonvillerssom.

Would you say that the surname Glew was a common name or uncommon because I have been trying to research a fella called Walter Glew, (Cpl) Service number 3497 was serving in the 24th Bn Royal Fusiliers killed 24/03/1918.

Could this chap Walter have been related? who knows,as I cannot find anything about him where he came from, no service records ect.

Best Regards Andy.

It is a relatively unusual name in SDGW which would presumably be reflected countrywide. heres your mans card.
