The aim of this site is to give a different look at Old Hereford, with new and old pictures of its people, it's buildings, it's businesses and events from over the years.
Something a little different for people to take a look at and talk about.
A dispatch from the "War Office" sent to Pte (Acting L/Cpl) Frederick Adams of the "Herefordshire Regiment" for distinguished services in the field during the War of 1914-1918.
Soldiers who are mentioned in dispatches, whilst not awarded a medal, receive a certificate and are entitled to wear a decoration. For 1914-18 and up to 10th August 1920, the decoration consisted of a spray of oak leaves in bronze.
