Photo of (from left to right) Sgt Emlyn James M.M., unknown, and Percy Bufton in Royal Flying Corps uniform- on leave.

Regimental Quarter Master Serjeant 2960 Reginald Percy Bufton, Montgomeryshire Yeomanry, was later comissioned and served as a Lieutenant in the Royal Flying Corps and Royal Air Force.

Part of a collection relating to Walter H. Powell, Llandrindod Wells, (private / driver M2-267205 Mechanised Transport Army Service Corps). Born 1898, Walter tried to join up under-age on a number of occasions, finally succeeding in 1916. He served many months - (more than 2 years?) - in different army units in Britain, before going over to France. He served as a despatch rider for an anti-aircraft battery in 1918-1919. Walter was gassed "suffering the effects all his life". He was a founder member of Toc-H in Llandrindod, and a keen footballer - he died in 1994 aged 96. However Walter's older brothers (Cliff and Percy Powell) and his uncle (Humphrey Powell) died of wounds sustained during the war.
