It looks like E.S.Steely Wright to me as well.

There are two E.S.Wrights on the CWGC site as I am sure you know, but perhaps the "Steely" bit is his nickname - Man of steel so to speak?

Just a thought, BillyH

Could it be E.S.Keely Wright?

If you look at the S on Sincerely, it bears no resemblance to the S on Steely--so it could be a K with a space between the uprights--if you see what I mean!!

Any chance of seeing the subject of the photo? as this also may help? I assume that it is military?
