Remembered Today:

Sgt Robert George Price MM MSM


Guest

Recommended Posts

Hi

Can any one help me find the MM and/or MSM citations for Robert George Price, Royal Engineers. He was in 123 Field Company RE and this was attached to the 38th Welsh Division. He was a mature man being 32/33 on enlistment. He was a stone mason by trade and was from bridgend in South Wales. His decorations probably date from 1917 onwards. On his 1914/15 star he is named as a Sapper so he clearly had promotion. Unfortunately I cannot find his service papers. His medal card has a reference to the MM but no details. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Not an aswer to your question, but as an aside, his service record will not yet be online even if it exists. The P surnames have not yet been digitised. They are on microfilm in class WO363 at the National Archives.
