depaor01 Posted 20 April , 2016 Share Posted 20 April , 2016 Hi all, I recently bought a BWM to a John Henry Power (17296 Lancashire Fusiliers) from a seller who stated the recipient was also awarded an MM. Having bought the BWM from him, he mentioned in passing that he also happened to have the MM at which point I felt duty bound to sell one of my children to buy it also I'm aware of the views held here on "medal group splitters" and all I can say is that I was glad the seller flagged this with me and that I happily had the wherewithal to purchase both awards. Anyway, to my query: John Henry Power was mentioned in the London Gazette on the 14th January 1918 as a being in 3rd/5th Battalion, but is mentioned on an Army Order 20 of 1919 form (?) as being from the 19th Batt. Lancashire Fusiliers. I am clueless about which War Diary to order from Kew to see details of the action in which Pte. (later Lance Cpl) Power earned his award. Does anyone have the diary that might mention him, or could someone perhaps point me towards where to see the appropriate diary in the NA?
