Hi, I am the Museum Development Manager of the Royal Welsh Fusiliers Museum in North Wales and have an ongoing project to seek out all the RWF who were in WW1. I am presently typing up all the names of the Fallen into a separate Powerpoint for each month of each year and am on March 1918 at the moment.

Each man has his own page and at the centenary of the month we put the relevant presentation on a loop at the Museum.

I found your excellent site while searching for images of the men. I have quite a task as over 10,000 RWF died in WW1. I wondered if you had any images of RWF at all?  I am emailing you from home right now but you can contact me either here or at work.

Thanks very much Shirley Williams RWF Museum
