A search request has been received from the Daughter of Korean Veteran, Private Alan Pritchard,

It read :    "My Dad, 22233303 Pte Alan Pritchard, served in Korea with the 1st Battalion Middlesex Regiment. He sadly died in 1990. I am in possession of a number of photos taken in camp(s) and on R&R. If anyone is interested in seeing them, please let me know, and I would be happy to e-mail them. If anyone remembers my Dad, I would be interested to hear from them too. I was proud to be a soldier's daughter and now I'm proud to be a soldier's mother".

I started my Service in the Welch Regiment).

I joined the 2nd Battalion RWF in 1941 at Selkirk in Scotland . Served with them through Madagasgar

to Burma until they were disbanded in Sadpur 1945.

I would be interested to hear from any of the lads I joined up with in the Welch Regiment 16th

Battalion at Cardiff, some names are: Sammy Boxall, Tom Evans, Dick Pardoe and Wally Cox.

I rejoined the 1st Battalion 1946/47 at Gevelsberg  Germany , then to Hubbelrath (Dusseldorf ) and on to Berlin

The Son of a Korean Veteran seeks information from friends and Comrades of his late Father.

Paul Dowson writes :-

Just visited your roll of honour and wondered if you may be able to help me in my search for former comrades of my late father

(George Dowson) who served in the welch reg't in korean war.

My father died 18 years ago as a result of heart attack which was the long term problem caused by rheumatic fever which he got in korea.

I hope you will be able to help me in my search and I will be grateful for any advice you can offer.

I do not know what company of the regiment he served with unfortunately, however I can tell you that he came from Newcastle upon Tyne, and was a proper geordie lad.

He was medically discharged whilst serving in Korea, with Rheumatic fever however he saw action on one of the hills which he did tell me,

when I was a child, was situated next to another which they called "old Baldy"

I hope this is useful information, Many thanks for looking into this for me I appreciate it.

The format will be based on identifying the the applicant / the 'Seeker' by campaign, date served, Branch of the services, unit, service number, rank, name, plus any nickname used at the time of the acquaintance and Home Town, who will provide as much of the same detail that he/she has recorded, or can recall, to identify the 'Sought'.
