    Trying to Reunite a PPCLI VM with a Memorial Cross !!

    Post by Hill677 on Sun Jan 16, 2011 10:05 am

    Back in July, I purchased a Single medal (VM) To #63 Pte Harold John Cosh, No.1 Coy, PPCLI

    His Memorial cross is now up for sale on Ebay.!!! Very Happy

    He was killed in action during the famous Battle of Frezenberg (8–13 May). He was the 3rd of 4 children of William Alexander & Emily A. Cosh, of Rotherhithe, London, England.(He was killed on the 8th )

    His prior military service, lists 5 years with Duke of Cornwall's Light Infantry (DCLI) ** Can anyone find his Regimental # for me ?? :)

    Really hoping to reunite this group !!!!Very Happy Very Happy If you know what I mean!!
