Medals Auctioned in Jan 2016. Spink's link to Bloody Sunday is spurious and incorrect. Garwood was in Dublin but was almost certainly NOT the Lt Col in the brothel. He was DAQMG not an intelligence agent
1882 Apr 13. Born Pembrokeshire. His father, John, was 37 and his mother, Margaret, was 32. He had two brothers born in Meerut, West Bengal, India in 1872 and 1873. His parents married in Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire, Wales in 1871. His father was was in RE eventually rising to Lt Colonel
