Great-Granddad's Medals

This past week has been a mix of highs and lows. I have located nearly all of my Great-Granddad's family (all of his brother's family - Glossop, Clark & Beverstock). I now need to track down his sister's family (McLachlan). This was the highs of the week.

In regard to Thomas' medals I had a mix of great highs and lows. I discovered that his brother Charles took loving care of them. Unfortunately after Charles died in 1969, no-one seems to know what happened to them.

I still hold some sort of hope that some day, by some miracle I will hopefully find them.

I was delighted to find your blog which is most helpful to me. I am in the process of writing the biography of Frederick Stobo Phillips who also died on 5 Nov 1916. At the time he was in the process of bandaging George Edward Burns. Their bodies were not recovered until March 1917 by which time the 'Huns' had re-treated. So, for me, it was a real bonus to stumble across this. Many thanks, Michelle

Hi Michelle,
I am so happy to see that my blog has worked - someone has found a use for it.
I have not put all the information I have found on here. If you need help with anything contact me.
