Hi all

I recently purchased the huge period frame of original photos all named, a fantastic piece and so far I have identified most, some are easy unique name with badges etc, some I am 99% on, here is my list if Iidentified ones then I will add some pics of the ones I'm struggling with, they look to all be Sheffield lads so far ! We're they a cricket team before the war or something like?

I'm sure you Sheffield experts may know and some nice pals here to ....

Matthew Bradshaw: y&l 38884

Edwin Ellis swift: Dow. 12/2133 shef pals

Harold judge: queens own dragoon guards 3795 & 13th yorks reg 235617

Arnold bell: 13th y&l Kia Barnsley pals

Thanks chaps, getting somewhere, the uniform on J. C. DUNN? Anybody have a idea? If he I'd army cyclist corps of military foot police, does this uniform ring true?

And how about Harry Daniels in the last pic, does that look like a royal west Kent badge to you ???

Not expecting answers on some of the chaps as almost impossible

Cheers

J.C. Dunn's collar badge is the inner part of the York and Lancaster badge - i.e. without the scroll or the crown.

Harry Daniels' cap badge is Royal Artillery. The bottom part of the wheel is just not catching the light as well.

JC Dunn is a possible 'Beaucamps Ligny' man, I also have him on the front page of my website.

I think I know where that picture frame came from, I have been searching for that quita a while !!

Sylvester Hill appears on the Carver street Wesleyan and Sunday School roll of honour here in Sheffield. The Chapel is now an Australian theme pub, I was told that there were 'two' picture frames with images hanging on the wall before it was turned into the pub. Then I was informed that they had been 'sold', this was a few years ago.

Well dean has come up trumps, all 17 of these chaps are on the above memorial, seven of whom were Kia/Dow , others named alongside their brothers who also served.

Apparently there was another frame similar as they hung together for best part the last century, I would be very intrigued to find out where the other one may be, please do get in touch if you know of it whereabouts

Hello Garfyboy

 

I have just found your post on this site when I searched my Great Uncle's name Harold Cussens, his twin brother is my Grandpa, I have been trying to locate any photographs of Harold for some time now and it appears that you have one of him and my Grandpa Cussens!

 

I would be so very grateful if you could please post any close up photos of them from the large frame or even email them to me.

 

I hope you receive this message, thank you so very much if you could do this.

 

I shall tell you more about Harold once I receive a reply and know you have received this message.

 

Looking very much forward to hearing back from you at your earliest convenience.
 

Debra
