Hi Mo

Respect to your grandfather for his wartime achievements, assume his commendations appeared in the London Gazette.
I've not seen a team photograph for 1921-1922 in the South Wales Gazette, I have been looking down the years because Tom Farquarson was in that side. Look him up on wiki, he carried a revolver in his kit bag and rumour had it he once fired it into the dressing room ceiling at Ninian Park.
Don't know if you have access to the newspapers but hopefully they'll add the South Wales Argus one day, more sporting pictures appeared in there.
