Hi all
Just had a good bit of luck I bought a QSA way back in 2004 to Pte John Richards 1556, 2nd Shropshire L.I., bars Cape-Colony--Paardeberg-Driefontein-Johannesburg after my initial research I found
he emigrated to Canada in 1902, he enlisted in early 1916 and joined the 9th Canadian Army Medical Corps, whilst looking on a auction site, up popped his War & Victory medals, what a shock,
they have just arrived, and after a good clean they have been reunited with the Queen's medal.
Happy Day's
All the very best to all at Chritsmas
Philip

Cheers Mike
I hope to get a set of his service papers but RICHARDS have still not been digitized yet, I did however find a mention in the 9th Canadian Field Hospital war diary of his promotion to CPL.
All the best to you
Philip
