This appears coreect as they have their first daughter Annie May one year later. She marries Thomas Moyles, son of James Moyles who died in the trenches and was great grandfather to radio DJ Chris Moyles I believe.

I have no record of his wife, unlike the other brothers, so not sure who Bridget is or when they married.

I will need to get membership of sone sites I think...

Thanks

Anthony

Sorry Matlock but I was getting my "brothers" confused.... John did indeed marry Bridget Corcoran as I have the birth certs of the children. I did not have a record of the marriage but a member here has indicated 1907 via church records and that chimes with their first daughter in 1908.

thanks to all

Brilliant stuff Maureene, that might well be the answer.  In winter months trews were often worn, but not usually in the hot season, so it could be them.  Several of the men are wearing shoulder titles, but unfortunately the angle of view isn’t right to make them out.

Thanks PJ, I will try to get in touch with my contact regarding the picture.

September 11th 1914 should be the publication date. My mother has the clipping but it is falling apart. A few years ago a cousin scanned it and that is the copy I recently photographed (badly...).  .

I found a copy of the edition of the Daily Sketch in West Glamorgan archive and they scanned the entire page for me showing the seven brothers.

Many thanks to the West Glamorgan Archive too - outstanding service from them.
