I was wondering if this lovely community could help me and my friend identify who this man is that the medal belongs to and possibly his history. As you can see the impression of his Regl. Num. Name, and Regiment name are quite worn down and the only 100% thing we can make out is his Rank being PTE.
My friend believes it reads, 5435 PTE. A. Powers Lanc RegI but after many hours using the name search on here and the records provided by the British Public Records website, we've come up empty. So I ask humbly can someone please help us out in figuring out just who this is?
I have some good news! One of my friends other friends actually found the guy. His last name was Bowers and not powers. Here’s his info
Here he is: Name: A Bowers
Service Date: 1899-1902
Service Place: South Africa
Campaign or Service: South Africa - Second Boer War
Regiment or Unit Name: 1st Battalion East Lancashire
Regimental Number: 5435
I appreciate your help though, thank you so much )
