|A request for Photo's from the Royal Welsh Fusiliers Museum|
The Royal Welch Fusiliers Museum in Caernarfon has started the mammoth task of looking for photos of individual soldiers from the RWF who were killed in the Great War.
You can help them by circulating our plea to anybody who is interested. Many families have photographs tucked away so this might prompt them to seek them out. We accept scans or copies and any that appeared in newspapers, which often carried obituaries including photographs.
They need as much information as possible to go with the photo to make sure we fit the right photo to the right man – but sometimes a name and date of death might be all we need.
