Very grateful if somebody can obtain a copy of this man's MIC.

Hopefully this is the right one, none of the cards for Walter Edwards have the rank of Saddler Serjeant, this is the closest that fits the bill. There is nothing on the back.

The 6 digit TF number was part of the block allocated to the 5th London Bty, 2nd London Bde, RFA, during late November 1916. Walter must have seen service with another unit given his date of entry,

cheers, Jon

From elsewhere on the forum, his 6-digit number was part of the block allocated to one of two units....

950001-955000 235 BDE, RFA TF/ 1/5 LONDON BDE

950001-955000 300 BDE, RFA TF/ 2/5 LONDON (BROKEN UP AUG 16).

From his date of entry I'd suggest he went overseas with the 1/5th London Brigade (Batteries from Kennington and Paddington) as part of 47th (2nd London) Division which started to move to France 8th March 1915.

Regards

Thanks very much Steve and jay dubbya; he was from just outside Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, so being with 47th London Division makes sense.

The Dacorum History Society recently printed a piece about his life after the War with a poor quality picture and he is wearing a 14/15 Star ribbon which ties in.
