6020 Pvt B.Heaps Notts & Derby Regt


OLD ROBIN HOOD

Recommended Posts

Greetings from Sherwood Forest where it has been a glorious week with many visitors.

A item of news on the Nottingham radio station said that the local museum of the Mercian Regiment

which includes the Sherwood Foresters is being moved to the museum in Mansfield while Nottingham

Castle where it currently resides is being refurbished.. This will bring it closer to Sherwood Forest.

 

My current research project is a WW1  1914-15 star trio to 6020 Pvt B. Heaps  Notts & Derby Regt. I have had it for a long

time and despite trying have found nothing about him. With the trio is a 5 bar Queens South Africa medal to

6096 Pte B. Heaps Notts & Derby Regt . I have found two medal rolls confirming the award to him.

Interesting one this, so if any of you kind people can help I will be most grateful, as I always am.

Hi Alf

 

Many thanks for the information. Having his first name has been a great help. I will follow up the F.M.P. lead as soon as I can.
