Lieutenant-Colonel Arthur Clement Edwards, Royal Field Artillery

Despite holding a significant rank, next to nothing is known about this man.  Chailey Parish Magazine first mentions Major A C Edwards of the Royal Field Artillery in November 1916.  In January 1919 and thereafter until the final published roll call in July 1919, he is noted as Lieutenant-Colonel A C Edwards. 

He is Arthur Clement Edwards but I have been unable so far, to establish a connection with Chailey.  Furthermore, while there are a number of individuals with this name listed on census records and civil registration index returns, I have not been able to positively tie in the Chailey Arthur Clement with any of these men. 

His service record does exist at the National Archives and I shall record his biography in greater detail once I have accessed it.
