George Powell was a very small man and was enlisted into The Welsh Bantams. Being of a very young age when the war began he joined by stating he was older than his correct age. By the end of the Great War George had spent a year in hospital suffering horrific injuries.


Editor's Comment:
Two unidentified men of the King's Shropshire Light Infantry, and one of the Lancashire Fusiliers.

Private George Powell would have enlisted as a Bantam in the 17th (Service) Bn. (1st Glamorgans), The Welsh Regiment.
