Here is my Great Grandfather Richard George Read (b.1899 d.1946) of the Royal Horse Artillery who served in the BEF from the age of 14 in 1914 then in Palestine and Egypt until 1930. He re-enlisted in 1938 and was captured at the fall of Singapore in 1942, where he spent the rest of the war as a POW in Changi. He sadly died within a year of his release in 1946. He was survived by his wife and two daughters of Llangawsai, Llanbadarn Fawr, Aberystwyth. He is commemorated at Llanbadarn Fawr War Memorial
