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!

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
