    Pte. Alexander Rees Davies 2nd Battalion The Welch Fusiliers (d.25th Feb 1917)

    Alexander Rees Davies was born in Llanychaiarn, Cardiganshire, Wales in 1881. His father was a tailor and he was a plasterer by trade. His first regiment was the Welsh Horse and his service number was 11722. This Regiment then became absorbed in the Welch Regiment, I believe.

    His death Certificate shows that he died at the Netley Hospital (the Royal Victoria Hospital) on 25 February 1917, of "multiple G.S. wounds of body and limbs and septicaemia and collapse". He was 36 years old and had been married for just over a year.

    He is buried in the Llanychaiarn churchyard. His headstone reads:

    In loving Memory


    The beloved husband of Kate Davies of Towyn, Merioneth.

    "Duty and honour bid us part 'Til the day breaks and shadows flee away."

    Sharon Immelman
