Sjt. John William Wardman DCM, MM.
British Army Duke of Wellington's West Riding Regiment 10th Btn.
As far as I know, my great-grandfather, John Wardman, served in the 10th Battalion, the West Riding Regiment. I have his service records, but like many surviving from ww1 they are quite faded and difficult to read. He was awarded both the Distinguished Conduct Medal and the Military Medal for bravery but I have only the London Gazette listings for these, as I have not yet been able to view the war diaries to find out more information.
If you know of anyone who served with this unit at the Battle of Messines, please complete the form below so that they can be remembered.
