No Probs Bren, I use Itunes to keep tabs on whats available, and use the SUBSCRIBE function, then as new Podcasts are released my PC downloads them. I can then use my PC to listen to them, or transfer them to my Ipod :D

I wonder if you could help me.I have two medals.I believe them to be a British War Medal and Victoria Medal dated 1914-1919-1920.The medals have on the edge written T4-213133 PTE. A Perry.A.S.C. Did medals have information to whom they were presented or can you enlighten me.Many Thanks, Casey

Thank you for the infomation. Now i have to some how find out if thats where he was living and if he belongs to a side of the family with the name perry of which i am not having very much success with.I know they were living in birmingham in 1906.Pherhaps this is why i cant find them because they didnt orriginate from birmingham.May i ask you where you got info and would there be other information on records for him.Once again thank you.

Casey,
Got the info from Ancestry.
Looked for other service or pension records using regimental numbers but no Perry showed up...unfortunately.

Hi John,Thank you very much for sending that info to me,yes it is the person i was looking for.Thank you.

Now i have another problem with my grandfather charles william poole who it is said was in the royal warwicks and we do have a lapel badge and a silk pouch with the coat of arms on but the medal card we have does not mention the warwicks and i have been to kew but there are no records.My mom tells me he was at the battle of the somme.It is very annoying when the men who came home there is little information. Once again thank you for information.
