Stories, research, thoughts, photos and notes about my family and ancestors.
I see he has a walking stick so was he wounded before. A great photo of Harry you have there.
I suspect the stick is a prop? There is no record of an injury in his defense records.I believe that the stamp at the bottom relates to photographer, Colin Campbell, 31 Prince Street, Edinburgh (he operated from 31 Prince street 1917-1919). It seems the photo was taken (and sent home)while he was on leave in August (a month before he was killed).
Those poor parents. I cannot imagine the depth of their grief.
Yes very sad.
