We recently discovered that my wife's grandfather was 'Clifford Frederick Randall' born in Birmingham on the 4th March 1898 and served in the Royal Warwickshire Regiment, Unit: 2/6th Battalion during the Great War. Finding a photograph of him would mean a huge amount to our family. It appears Clifford had no other children. He died on the 17th August 1965 in Christchurch, Hampshire.

Hello Abraham and welcome to the GMIC.  I'm afraid I'm on the wrong side of the Atlantic to be much help on this one but I do hope some of our UK members will make suggestions. 

I assume that you have the details of his service already?  Sadly, photos from the Great War of other ranks are fairly rare, though some exist.  Officers and senior NCOS are more likely   I don't see a 'Randall on this site, but you may want to look through the 6th battalion list: http://www.ww1photos.com/RoyalWarwickshireRegt.html

This site gives some good info. on where the 6th were deployed: https://www.forces-war-records.co.uk/units/316/royal-warwickshire-regiment

And finally,  Might I suggest contacting the Royal  Regiment of Fusileers' museum, though the odds are slim.  http://www.warwickfusiliers.co.uk/

Probably better looking in local newspapers where he was living when he enlisted and perhaps for his post-War years, especially if he was involved in the Legion.  Good luck in the hunt!
