    Gents,

    With a little bit of downtime I decided to do a bit of sorting and shuffling of my collection and happened upon this interesting piece. Beneath a bit of ephemera I completely had forgotten that I purchased this dual picture framed piece showing two brothers who were killed in France. The real sadness occurs when you see superimposed within their respective pictures is a picture of each of the soldier's family. This is small snippet of the many lives lost in the Great War.

    Regards,

    Joel

    Ralph,

    Thank you! It definitely was an item I couldn't pass on. It certainly speaks volumes all until its own.
