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!

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
