Thank you ...... I have lots of info on him, plus his records from National Archives, and the war diaries.  I just really wanted to know if this was a photograph of him......as we don't have one.

Possibly - 1st Bn. Lancashire Fusiliers ??

Not sure if this is Thomas Ardill Haslam (born 1892), already serving in 1911 census in barracks.....died after the landing at Gallipolli in 1916.

I had been told the picture was of his father Samuel (1864-1919).....it was found in possessions of Thomas' brother, (I have a feeling it was his brother not his father)

I am unsure of which family member this is and the identification of the uniform could help date it....

Walter Frank Jarka left Russia c. 1913 leaving his family behind......

His father Frank Jarka died in an accident in Russia 1918 - he was an employee of the Cement Co, at Novorossisk.
His mother Annie (next of kin on his army records)- address (Novorossisk Port, Portland Cement Co.) died of old age c.1923.

Any info would be good!

He also had a brother Peter - he died in Russia in c.1920

Sister - Anna Jarka married M. Novokov and was living near Moscow in 1935, but it is not known if they survived the war or if any descendants.

The posts on this thread are quite old.....but in case anyone is following -

My husband is a descendant of a Thomas Bridge (possibly the brother of John 1715-1746).

Thomas was born c. 1711/12 at Withins Farm, Hawkshaw and died there in 1787.  He was married to Nancy (Ann) Fildes in 1733 at St. Mary's in Bury.  They had 3 sons (that I know of) Thomas 1739, James 1746  and John 1749.

Thank you everyone...some great links there.

I will keep looking - I'm hopeful he's still alive (nothing on any of the cemetery sites or death notices)

Yes.....I now have him in Canberra until 1980.

I also have a female at the same address - so I am assuming he married.

Are there marriages index online?
