« on: Friday 10 October 08 12:19 BST (UK) »
Help and guidance need please on where to turn to for any source that I maybe able to track down my Grandfather  he was allegedly the Landlord of a public house in CRICKHOWELL he was Frank BILLINGHAM. b.14-02-1883, Leominster, Herefordshire. Died 02-03-1975. Hay-on-Wye. He married Charlotte METCALFE.

I believe the Public House was either the Britannia or the Albion. The years would have been 1920-1930's.

I have at last found some trace of him living at 5, Bridge Street, Kington, Herefordshire during the summer of 1916.

He then appears as enlisting into the Army on 5th June 1916 at Leominster, Herefordshire.

Royal Field Artillery as a Driver s/n 77248
Royal Garrison Artillery, Gunner s/n 142186

I need some help here it is listed on his medals  15 Star RGA/1C or J. Page 158.
What does this mean?

Theatre of War (1)France 26-09-1915. (are there any other records I can look at?)

I published this on the Military Board too, WW1.
