Hello, am coming to this topic very late, however, am hoping to track down the record of my Grandfather, Alexander Patrick Brown. I am hoping to confirm that he was in the Ceylon Planters Rifle Corp. The only record I have has him in The Royal Dublin Fusiliers, entering France 04/01/1915. This seems to align with the record of other CPFC members. Does anyone have access to the relevant information/registers?

Bought a picture of 4 Company, CPRC, yesterday. It says it was presented to Lt Col, R Benzie, DSO, VD, on the 20th May 1928. Picture attached. It also has the names of everyone in the picture at the bottom. If anyone wants any close-ups, or details of the names, please ask.

Hi,

My grandfather, Lcpl LA Hayter, is pictured here. He returned to England in 1917 , enlisted in RFA ( and was subsequently commissioned)

returning after the war, rejoining his old unit as a Lcpl ! ( Old boys Club ? )

He died suddenly in 1940, aged 53 and as a CSM  in CPRC was afforded a full military funeral in Colombo. Any other information on him would be gratefully received.
