    Thanks, Sis. An absolutely amazing collection of photographs. From them I learned things, mainly about uniforms, that I've never known before.

    Thanks for the link very interesting. Took me almost twenty years to find my Dads WW1 Military Service. All that I had was he was a batman for an Officer and the memory of a photograph of him in his uniform, hung up in the coal house ( but lost, and also from memory of myself and sister before we could do anything about it). His record found as a result of a girl in my class at school saying you and I are related, when I was 12 years old. (now 74). Thank you

    Thanks Sis.....what hit me the most is the thought of the young lads who joined up to do their patriotic duty and had NO idea of the horrors that they would face. How awful for them. Ron's two uncles joined up in England, but were a cook and a clerk respectively I think. Darn glad they were. I did meet one of them. The movies make it look like "a walk in the park".....but the photos sure as heck showed the horrors!!
