Hope it is OK to resurrect an old thread here, but I am looking for any information on Edward William Williams who is my wife's grandfather and we believe served in the RGH in WW1 In the only photo we have he is wearing a 1903 pattern bandolier, an Imperial Yeomanry style uniform, leather walking out belt with "spoon" GS belt buckle and what appears to be an Australian type slouch hat. No regimental insignia is visible however. The photo may have been taken in Alexandria, Egypt? The Gloucester Journal dated 8th January 1915, published a complete roll, by Squadrons, of the soldiers of the 1st Gloucestershire Hussars that were on active service, with their regimental numbers. In the third column, under B Squadron, near the end of the first paragraph after the Officers names, is the entry – 1923 Saddler E.W.WILLIAMS I know that Williams is a common name, E. Williams is still not that unusual, but E.W.Williams? That is more uncommon, and he is in the 1st Gloucestershire Hussars and off to Gallipoli; also as a saddler he would have access to the fancy walking out belt (what we'd call Gucci kit these days), so could it be the same soldier?
