Remembrance by: The British Cyprus Memorial Trust

Date added: 9 Jul 2009

L/Cpl Bryan David George WELSH is one of the 372 British Servicemen who died on active service during the four-year Cyprus Emergency April 1 1955 to April 18 1959, and whose name is among those remembered with honour on the British Cyprus Memorial. Serving with the Royal Military Police he was killed when a terrorist hiding behind the wall of an orange grove threw a grenade into the open back of his truck in Famagusta on March 21 1956. The bomb fell at his feet and in the hope of saving the others he picked it up to throw it out but it exploded in his hand. Although it severely wounded the man next to him his action is credited with saving the lives of the two others in the front of the truck. He was posthumously awarded the Queen’s Commendation for brave conduct. Aged 18 from Fleetwood Lancashire he is buried at Wayne’s Keep, the British military cemetery in Cyprus, Plot 20 Row A Grave 3.
