Eugene Paul Bennett VC

Postby Donnie » Fri Sep 26, 2008 7:37 pm

Hi im new to this forum,

I am a member of the Great War Forum and ww2talk Forum. I have found a new interest in the Worcestershire Regiment and particulaly Eugene Paul Bennett VC after buying an engraved snuff box that belonged to him from his God-Son. I was told that Bennetts medals were donated to the museum and are on display?.....i live to far away from the museum but if anyone has a picture of his medals i would be most grateful. also any information that is not listed on the main site would be great.

Best Regards, Donnie

Hi Donnie
Welcome to the Worcestershire Regiment Forum
Yes Eugene Bennetts medals are in the museum and as photographs are allowed providing you have permission So Ihave no doubt someone has taken a photograph, But your best bet is to write to RHQ at Norton Barracks and ask you will no doubt will have ti pay you can contact them from the opening page of this site.
