The casualty Pte D. Gough is named on the Tirphil War Memorial.  He does not appear on CWGC; can someone please help with any details.

Thanks

Hi

Unfortuntely I have no details of him to compare against your info; I'm unable to use Ancestry/FMP until the new year so I haven't had the opportunity to look for any service records etc, nor the 1911 cenus for clues.  I must be honest, I haven't come across the abreviation C.L.Y. before, so are you saying it could be the City of London Regiment?  Why would a boy from the Welsh valleys join a London Regiment?  Roy

hi there rjaydee, if you click this link open then click on Tirphil you will see the inscribed names then a biopsis at the side, so it looks very much like our man.

The form from the army to the pension people was dated 16/1/1919 and registered death in the June 1/4 of 1919.

He was discharged from the army on the 15/1/1919 and died June 1919, so I suppose technically he didn't die in the army so therefore he wouldn't be listed by the CWGC.

Locally the committee empowered with the war memorials would most likely have listed him.

I am more than happy to be corrected on the point of the CWGC.

Cheers Roger.

If the TB can be attributed to his service (which is highly probable) then yes he's a candidate for IFTC

Ray, Jon and Little Bob,

Are any of you able to view his pension record on Ancestry as one page definitely say it is attributable and another says aggravated by army service and training, so I'm confused now, I would like it to go to the IFTC.

Cheers Roger.

Hello Roger, Jon, Bob and Ralph

Thanks so much for your details.  I note the link to the Gelligaer Historical Society site, a few of us members are trying to find something on all those named, some have really stories to tell, others very little, but at least it shows they will all be remembered.  Its a project I am deeply engrossed in and can't thank you guys enough for your help.  

Many thanks, Roy

 

PS what does the abreviation IFTC stand for?

Roger. Had a read of his record, seems a pretty grey area, he says it was from his war service training etc, but he was a collier in civvie life. Perhaps one of the IFTC overseers could give some guidance. Calling Chris Harley where are you ? Ralph.
