John Thomas Rees
2nd Bn The Lancashire Fusiliers
1921 to 1928

Between the years 1920 and 1936, the 2nd Bn of the XX were on a continuous overseas posting to various parts of India.

John Thomas Rees joined them in 1921 at Nowshera and left them in 1928 at Wellington.

In the past I have often been confused by seeing "Wellington" on discharge documents and presumed it to be Wellington Barracks Bury.

It is in fact Wellington in India.
