This is excellent research for the site. Bringing together items from two continents and keeping alive the memory of these soldiers in the digital era.

Hello Frank,

The more I look at this the more I think I have perhaps the wrong Ford. However, I wonder if perhaps they could be related?? same surname and same Regiment?

I will dig a bit deeper with this one.
