Comments about this page

  • Thank you very much Graham for this most interesting addition to the Bottesford Parish WW1 Archive. It must have been taken later in the 1st World War given Florrie’s apparent age and his service uniform. We will take a closer look at his uniform and try to date it more precisely. Many thanks for your interest and contributions to the web site. I have alerted Bill Pinfold one of the website editors who has a particular interest in the Harby family’s 1st World War service. Bill is editing the Glenys and Melvyn Claricoat’s WW1 postcard collection for the archive section on the website.
