The War Graves of Ystradgynlais

Thomas Edward Guppy

Thomas Edward Guppy served with the Royal Army Ordnance Corps and was killed in action at Dunkirk in May 1940.

He seems to have been generally known as Eddie, hence his inclusion on the Scouts Memorial Trophy, unveiled at Penrhiwvarteg in April 1950 as Eddie Guppy.

The information on Thomas Edward Guppy has been compiled from a number of sources, including the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, from the South Wales Voice newspaper, and the Parish Burial Register (courtesy of the Swansea Archives).
