Hi douglynn,

He's in the Service papers, not Pensions. He was in the Royal Engineers Railway Troops and residing at Ysgubor Ddegwm, Bodfari, (Trefnant, Flintshire). The address means "Tithe Barn", and is repeated as "Scubor Ddegwm" on two of his discharge papers. Both forms Ysgubor/Scubor are correct, the first is formally spelt, the second one more colloquial!

The Flintshire war record cards 1919 held at the Flints. County Records Office, Hawarden, list 44 men who served from Bodfari and 11 fatalities. Their online index doesn't list him however.

Clive
