Date: Friday 14th September 2018

A PENRITH man is to present to a Welsh regimental museum a set of First World War medals awarded to his grandfather.

The collection includes the Military Medal, which was awarded to Private Sydney Alfred Wells, of the Royal Welch Fusiliers, on 18th September, 1918.

His grandson, 70-year-old George Dudson, said the handover would take place 100 years to the day that it was first presented.
