Excellent Mike,

I thought that must be the man but the regimental number seemed rather at odds with those of his compatriots!

A visit, today, to the Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum on Foregate Street, Worcester found 5 jewels within their displays to the following recipients :
Captain Francis Checketts. Worcester Volunteer Battalion.
Lt. E. A. Knight. Worcestershire Yeomanry.
7202. Sergeant J Somers. Worcs Yeomanry.
6842. Private Henry Holmes. Worcs. Vol. Btn.
6848. Private john Albert's. Worcs. Vol. Btn.

Maybe you already have these names. I have seen Alberts mentioned previously.
