My grandfather Albert Jenkins served initially in the Welsh Regiment and always claimed that he served at Ypres. At some point he was detached from this regiment, joining another and going with them to the Dardanelles and Egypt. There he was reported missing, presumed killed; and it was not until this table runner turned up later that there was proof he was still alive. He served during the rest of the war and returned in 1919. He told his family that the lady selling the runner said she would send it home; however he took it off her and did it himself, suspecting she said that to everyone. This is an embroidered velvet table runner, showing military and oriental scenes, Egypt and Dardanelles 1915, with a union flag central cartouche, camels, pyramids, etc.
