FYNN / FINN, JAMES HENRY, Born St. Clement near Truro, Cornwall, to Frederick John Finn and Mary Baxter Finn.
Finn went to the South Wales Valleys looking for work. He eventually found employment at the colliery at Cwmtillery near Abertillery. At the Colliery he made friends with Willie Townsend and eventually went to live with the family in Frederick Street which has since been demolished.
On the outbreak of War he immediately enlisted with the local Regiment, The 4th Battalion of the South Wales Borderers.

It was on 9 April 1916 at Sanna-i-Yat, Mesopotamia (now Iraq), that 22 year old Private Fynn earned the Victoria Cross for his bravery.

   For most conspicuous bravery. After a night attack he was one of a small party which dug-in in front of our advanced line and about 300 yards from the enemy's trenches. Seeing several wounded men lying out in front he went out and bandaged them all under heavy fire, making several journeys in order to do so. He then went back to our advanced trench for a stretcher and, being unable to get one, he himself carried on his back a badly wounded man into safety. He then returned and, aided by another man who was wounded during the act, carried in another badly wounded man. He was under continuous fire while performing this gallant work.
   —The London Gazette, 26 September 1916[1]

Fynn was, according to family records and letters, badly wounded. He was carried back to safety, he died of his injuries that day

His Memorial at Basra, Iraq can be found at panel numbers 16 and 62. The Basra Memorial was originally sited within Basra War Cemetery but in 1997 the Memorial was moved by presidential decree of Saddam Hussain. The move, carried out by the authorities in Iraq, involved a considerable amount of manpower, transport costs and sheer engineering on their part, the Memorial has been re-erected in its entirety. The Basra Memorial is now located 32 kilometres along the road to Nasiriyah, in the middle of what was a major battleground during the Gulf War. The Memorial consists of a roofed colonnade of white Indian stone, 80 metres long, with an obelisk 16 metres high as the central feature. The names are engraved on slate panels fixed to the wall behind the columns. More than 40,000 British, Indian and West African dead who died in the operations in Mesopotamia from the Autumn of 1914 to the end of August 1921 are commemorated on the Memorial.

In 1966 Finn was also remembered at his home town of Bodmin when an estate was named "Finn VC Estate" in his honour. The ceremony was attended by many members of his family and members of his Regiment. The plaque commemorating the event was unveiled, and can be seen opposite the library in Bodmin. Sadly his VC is now kept locked away in a vault after it was donated to Bodmin Town Council, it has not been shown in public for many years.

Whilst his body was never returned to Cornwall he is remembered on his father's headstone in Bodmin Cemetery.

I have just found your register of people from Abertillery than served in the forces. Four of the entries are for Brickell. My great grandfather was Thomas Brickell. Is there any records of where he lived in Abertillery and were Fredick or John related? I know the other Thomas was his son.

Thanks

Philip Luxton - 2nd Welsh Regiment

Taff1918

William Edgar Castree, 8 Preston Street, Abertillery

Born 17/09/1892 in Orcop Herefordshire

William Edgar Castree enlisted on the 26/3/12 into 2nd line 3rd Battalion the Monmouthshire Regiment with the regimental number of 1289 and was transferred to the 9th Welsh Regiment on the 24/8/16 with a new regimental number of 53767.  He was a machine gunner who could be a little ill-disciplined and collected a couple of Regimental discipline entries for his misdemeanours.  Having been hospitalised from a head wound he was returned to the front line and on the 1/8/17 was further wounded in action that resulted in him losing his leg.  William died 09/01/1991 of bronchopneumonia, in Ty Darren Residential Care home Cromwell Road, Risca, Newport, Gwent, NP11 6GX at the age of 98.  Searching for his service medal index card was made a little more difficult because they had misspelt his name as Casstree!

William Edgar is Remembered in the Imperial War Museum "Lives of the First World War Life stories" at:    https://livesofthefirstworldwar.org/lifestory/748285

Thanks Stoob for all the effort you've put into this. I, for one, really appreciate it as I've found out why my late friend had no father when we were kids in the early years at the grammar school.
One query, what does absent voter mean?

Serving in the forces, so missing from the electoral register at their home address. The 1918 absent voters lists are over the Archives in Ebbw Vale.
