Private Oswell LLoyd 2667 & 290495 Royal Welsh Fusiliers

From Penhelig, Aberdyfi. Pre War Territorial (enl around Dec 1913/Jan 1914). Overseas service with 7th Bn after 31 12 1915 (probably due to age?). Wounded at least twice. In Nov 1917, the list has many of the 3rd Battle of Gazza wounded on it and in March 1918. See article column 3 towards bottom under Aberdovey in this link. Cornelius Jones was 290416 and from Brynhyfryd, Aberdyfi (is also on same casualty list). J Edward Jones is probably 291800 John Edward Jones of 21 Church Street, Aberdyfi. Although not on a casualty list for that action it's likely that the Cpl Ellis referred to is 291501 Hugh Pugh Ellis of Ty Cornel,Aberdyfi.
