I have recently purchased a Victory Medal with the following inscription on the rim : G - 22014 Pte W. Donnelly, The Queens Regt. I was wondering what the experts can find about this unknown hero.

Kindest regards to all.

Can't find a Medal Index Card but he had a Silver War Badge - Pte William Donnelly G/22014 enlisted 2 May 1916 and discharged from 7th Royal West Surreys on 3 July 1918 when he was 21.2 year's old.

Hope this snippet helps.

Hi David.

Private W. Donnelly wasn't unknown hero - according to my records 22014 is the Regimental Number of my maternal grandfather, to whom I was very close.

His life story is extraordinary by modern day standards - but perhaps not what you would expect.

Regards,

Paul.
