    I picked this one up recently, was pleased to find it as it will display nicely with my princess mary tin !, I have been informed that this version was sent to those serving in the navy, the army version has the king in a field marshal's uniform.

    As promised a couple of mine.The one on the left is an actual photograph.Two young and patriotic boys dressed as soldiers with a wreath containing a picture of the King.Showing support for an older serving brother?or maybe their Father?If so, did he survive?Who knows.And to the left a fine portrait of Norfolk regiment soldier sporting a nice 1914 pattern belt.If my research proves correct this man was KIA in France in 1917.This is gleaned from writing on the back of the card and some other cards I got with these, all being a large family group of cards.More to come soon.

    a handsome looking north Staffordshire regiment officer, sadly I don't know his name, this card came with a lot I purchased that belonged to a lady who was a VAD nurse at the east leeds war hospital.

    a different angle with this card from my collection, it shows Belgian refugees that stayed in a village close to where I live.

    Latest arrival, 4th/5th BN (composite) the Welsh Regiment. A very rare picture as it shows the formation patch, a pale green triangle.

    On the reverse it has written,
