Hi All ,
Time for yet another nudge up in case some of the newer chatters might recognise one of their relatives and for general interest .
                                       All the Best, Rog   :)

Doesn't seem like over 4 years since I posted this.
 Maybe one of you that has not been on Rootschat that long will recognise one of your ancestors in the photographs.
  Good Luck. :)

What wonderful pictures and accounts.  So very interesting.

One of my ancestors was in the RE and had his own horse with him throughout the conflict. 

I really enjoyed your Dad's accounts.  Wonderful that he had such a long life, albeit with his body suffering.  Hats off to him. 

Thanks for sharing.

As there has been a renewed surge of interest in WW1 I have bumped my post up in case a newby recognises an ancestor with my dad in the group photo.

Wonderful photos and great stories of your Dad's experience, Rog, thanks so much. I wish my Grandad had had a photographer handy: I'm always looking for him in RFA pictures! Grateful I have a studio pic of him though, not many have even that.

 Very generous of you to post these so someone else can have the opportunity to spot their rels, especially this year   :)

If you are on Facebook you might want to join one of the 1914-18 war groups or pages and post it on there :)
