Leigh,

It would be nice to see any additional NF Xmas that aren't illustrated here. As for that TA 1936 card the St.Georges Gazette for that year doesn't have the officers group photo's in it, so I haven't identified the Bn.

We also have the regimental journal, but the covers changed over time this is a much later edition.

Plus ones which are rarely seen. Not sure how many editions this 'newspaper' for 3rd Ind MG Coy ran to, but I know that there is No.1, 2 & 3.

You also have 34th Div Year Book, which ran for many, many years after the Great War. A very informative booklet, which was used extensively when John Sheen & I wrote "Tyneside Scottish".

Picked up at Greenwch Market a few weeks ago, "The Officers, 2/5th Fusiliers, St. George's Day".

Presumably taken the same day or a year or so either side of the photograph shown in post no. 57.

This card is one of "The Wellington Series".
