This thread is to collate information on Philippolis. It emerged as the result of a different thread on three men who are listed in the SAFF casualty roll and led to the creation of a page on the Philippolis Town Guard .

Several people have since contacted me on this topic and this thread is to collate that information and source more. Many thanks to whose who have made contact.

Elmarie send this image commemorating Pte H Vennish of the Town Guard.
