    Dear Jeremy,
    My step-mum’s father served with 182 company, she will be 91 on Saturday, I would love to provide her with more information, as she has wondered about this for many years. Please could you forward details of war diaries for his company and cost. We have his medal card, sadly his service records do not seem to have survived. I recently found The International Red Cross records for him and am putting together the information so far discovered. Fortunately he survived the war, little was spoken about his war years but he was supposed to have been taken prisoner and escaped several times. The Red Cross records, only show him in 1918 no earlier records for him available on-line. They suggest he was first captured in March 1918 sent to Dulmen camp and again captured in July 1918 sent to Munster 1 camp. I have reason to believe but waiting confirmation, that these were separate captures as the first states Fontaine and the second Somme, presume these are the places where he was captured.
    His name was Oliver Garfield Dummer, Reg. No 157846, from Glamorgan, S.Wales, full address on Red Cross cards although the spelling of some of the Welsh names is incorrect.
    Any additional information you can supply would be gratefully received. Many thanks in anticpation,
    Lorraine.
