Thanks Tony!

A friend of mine coloured my grandfather (sitting in 1st photo, served with Feldart.Rgt.43)  and my great-uncle (2nd photo, Lt.d.Res. with IR155)

Fortunately perhaps??

i wish I had more....

My Grandfather carried a camera during his service. Apparently wads of graphic photos survived war and travel until 1968. My Dad used to tell me of his horror at finding they were all destroyed upon his Dads death. My Nan had always hated them! 

But...

2 years ago I found his ID card, pin badge for the 83rd and some Rppc that survived. 

Treasure!!

once I've contributed a bit more I'll be shouting about him from the rooftops.....

4.44am so

Best wishes Sir.

Yes, it´s nice to find some stuff from the forefathers! I asked the entire family, but we were bombed-out in WW2, so only these two photos and the MP were left.

I´ve found another coloured photo, but it´s not from my family...:)

Nice one GreyC

do you think the lucky fella between the two ladies is holding a presentation box containing a medal/award?

perhaps the reason for the drinks?

tony
