Help needed - Frank Rowles Military Medal winner
« on: Wednesday 03 February 21 09:31 GMT (UK) »
Can anyone improve this image taken from a newspaper.

The only known picture of Frank 1891-1918.
He was awarded the Military Medal in December 1917 in the Battle of Passchendaele.
He is buried in Canada Farm Cemetery.

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to help.
There are some great restorations.
We will now have a family conference to select which ones will go in the family album.
