Thank you very much Peter, much appreciated

That is brilliant. Thank you so much


I think I maybe asking a lot but is there any chance someone could have a go at restoring this photo. My dad died last week and this is the only photo I have of him as a baby with his mum and possible dad.

Thanks you

Hi Jim

Here is the back. It does not say much or even tell I should say.

Hi All

Thank you for your replies. Tom 1893 is not the same Tom (Thomas) as I ordered that certificate. Thank you anyway Colin.

When the A site did military searches I found a medal card for Thomas.

I am curious about this photo because I cannot see him in it, yet he signed the back with love from Tom (well we think it is his signature.)

It definitely says April.

I did a little search myself about the canaries and only come up with this

I was hoping that someone would recognise a regiment or something or even the arm band.

Thank you for your input, hopefully someone may recognise something further on in time.

My cousin has found an old photo that we think may have someone we are related to in it. Our great grandfather, he was in the first world war in the 5th Gloucester Regiment. He was Thomas Henry Greening (birth unregistered) approx 1893 Tewkesbury.

This photo however says Canaries April 1917 on it. I cannot see him in the photo but on the back it says with love from Tom.

I am no good with military history and wondered if someone could tell me what regiment this is as we have no idea what we are looking for.

Thanking you in advance

Groom - that has helped quite a lot. Thanks

Cathy that is very helpful too.

I think there were two to three generations of Bush's that ran the pub so it would make sense. Just a shame I do not have more information

Ray - romantic connection but as I said very difficult to explain.

He was the publican as I mentioned. He was a romantic interest, not that that helps in looking for someone.

I am guessing, but not sure, which is why I am asking for suggestions of where I might look for info that he would have been between 30 - 40 years old

The connection, difficult to explain


Just seen the post about Facebook page. I will try that thank you, definitely worth a try
