Percival Hackworthy

Some months ago I was contacted by Betty Lesage from France who had a WWI dog tag which she thought belonged to an Australian soldier. It took a while to work out but the soldier was actually 1837 Percival Hackworthy, a British solider.
Luckily, the Hackworthy family has quite a bit of information on line and I was able to connect Betty with Percival's great nephew Steve. Betty has recently let me know that she has sent Steve the dog tag.
The returned medal tally is now 1742.
