    Default British soldier picture/postcard Information

    Hello there, after posting pics of family medals and getting lots of great help and info I would like to ask for help once more.

    I found this picture at my Grandma's house in relation to me he is my great uncle on my fathers side of the family, his name is Arthur Pyatt.

    I did some research and found out he was part of the Royal artillery, I think in WW1 and my Grandma told me he survived the war.

    Unfortunately that is all I know, help would me much appreciated

    Thanks.

    Hi

    His MIC can been seen in the link:

    The National Archives | Search results:Arthur Pyatt

    There are two possible men on there who could be him, one who served in the RGA and the other the RFA. Though it is most probably the latter.

    Thanks

    The photo is a post-great War photo. Jacket, Cap and the fact that the lanyard is on his right shoulder all are post great war.

    He does not look like he is wearing any ribbons????

    The medal card candidates may not be the man in the photo.
