Blimey, MaxD. I didn't expect even more ! I can't thank you enough for your efforts.

It seems he originally enlisted into the RFA under the name of Price, rather than Davies, according to the Carmarthen WW1 Memorial, so would his RFA details be under Price?

I'll be in Carmarthen in a few weeks so I will be able to visit the memorial.

Had his full service record survived, it would most likely have had both the RFA and NF details on it with a name change. In any event there is no separate record under the RFA number/name.

Not that it matters but his medal roll entry shows prior service in 26th Battalion NF before the 21st Battalion, the War Memorial details omit that bit.

Many thanks again MaxD.

I have to say that I didn't expect to find out so much about him, with so little to start from, and I very much appreciate all the help from everyone.
