Hi Mack,
Many thanks, another reason for my attachment to this group is that the reserve Battalion he was posted to was the 14th which was formed in my home town and was still here when he was posted to them.
The action that he was wounded in I have done a lot of research on, it still never fails to amaze me, the more I dig the more it amazes me.

Yes, there is a problem uploading images at present - no doubt the administrators will get working on it as soon as possible
