20904 PTE W ROBERTS R W FUS.
Medals about good very fine,on original full-length original silk ribbons.
This group is abit of a conundrum, as no M.I.C. exists, but the M.I.C. for 20914 W Roberts ,has a note at the top referring to 20904 "Not sent with Roberts W 20904" ? or "indent with"-this is very hard to read, but it would appear that they are one and the same person.
No reference to the British War and Victory Medals,on the Medal rolls, but he is on the Medal roll for 1914/15 Star,when he was attached to the Royal Engineers
20914 Pte. William Roberts 10th Battalion Royal Welsh Fusiliers was killed in action on 16th June,1917.He was born in Caerhun,and enlisted in Conway.He is commemorated on the Arras Memorial.
