GWF1967 Posted 16 January , 2018 Share Posted 16 January , 2018 William Gronw Richards. B. April 1880. Moylegrove, Pembrokeshire. Mother. Rachael. Lived. New Inn, Moylegrove. Enlisted. Cardigan. 23/02/00 Pte. 7533 Welsh Regiment. (Previously 1st V.B. Welsh Reg.) South Africa 25/02/01 - 01/08/02. (No mention on Ancestry S.A records; less than 18mths service?). "Discharged own request on return from S.A. 02/08/02". M. 1906. Wife - Mary Ann. I was told he later served in the Great War (Aged 34 in 1914) but am having trouble tracing him. I've no idea which regiment he may have served with. There are a few records for William G. Richards, Welsh Regiment, a William Gordon and a couple of George's. As his is an unusual name ( Welsh - Hunter/Warrior, lover of Blodeuwedd, murderer of Lleu Llaw Gyffes) it may have been wrongly recorded/transcribed. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
