Finding my grandfather John Owen Hughes
John Owen Hughes was RSM of the Welsh Guards in the 20s. In 1914 he transferred into the Grenadier Guards from the Boy's Regiment , then transferred to the Welsh Guards in 1916. Can you help us to find his service number? He died in 1941
Hi Kate, I've had a look at our records on Lives of the First World War (specifically, a record set named Welsh Guards 1914-1918). There are two possible matches for J O Hughes - one was born in Cardiff, the other in Abergele. Do either of these places match your grandfather's birthplace?
