As you may know the interesting WW1 discussion thread was closed down by the moderators, I feel partly responsible for that, I made some flippant comments regarding other members posts, I sincerely apologise for that, it was an interesting discussion.
Obviously next year will be the centenary of the beginning of WW1 in 1914. In tribute to those who took part, I thought it may be interesting to post some pictures of our brave ancestors who may have fought in that ghastly war.
Here is a picture of my great uncle George, my dear grandfather’s older brother, my father is named after him. This is the only picture we have of him, I assume taken before he left for the front.
He was a Driver with the Royal Field Artillery; he died on October 15th, 1917, aged 20, and is buried in the Huts Cemetery near Dikkebus, Ypres. He is pictured with his grandmother, whom I am told brought the young lads up, I am not sure what happened to their mother.
Thanks for looking.
