ID badge made from local (but dont know where) coin milled & inscribed. Belonged to my grandfather whose photo album of India & Mesopotamia 1916-1920 I submitted at the Edinburgh day. This says Sgt but all official documents say A/Sgt.


Editor's Comment:
'Sgt. H. M. Jones. | 26729 2nd Gr. Bn. Northd. Fus. | Mesopotamia.'
