G/7968 Pt John Gadd, 9th Royal Sussex
I don't have a lot of information on G/7968 Pte John Gadd. His army service number suggests that he joined the Sussex Regiment as a war-time enlistment, probably around the beginning of October 1915. His medal index card appears to confirm this as he received the British War and Victory Medals only and therefore must have arrived overseas on or after 1st Jannuary 1916. The medal roll for these medals confirms that he served with the 9th Battalion, Royal Sussex Regiment.
John Gadd survived the war.
