Schlebos Posted 15 October , 2013 Share Posted 15 October , 2013 (edited) In an secondhand shop in a small town at the north of The Netherlands, I bought an framed, old painted-in photo of an army man with kilt for just 35 euro's. The staff of the shop had written a little card with the year +/- 1920 on it but couldn't tell me what that year 1920 was about. On the other side of the photo is written in pencil: ' Jones' and 'South AV' . Also the name of a town, Durham I think. Somebody improved the handwrinting but its still a mystery. Although I love this photo, I think it doesn't belong at my wall, but with with the descendants of this handsome man. I posted a photo of the photo on a Ancestry-forum and quite a few people are helping me to find out who the person on the photo is. Its really a interesting and exiting journey but also very difficult. We (the people from the forum and I) cannot discover what kind of uniform he's wearing. Is he an Officer, a Band Major, what kind of cane is he carrying, what about his kilt ? And what's written on the back of the painted-in photo ? Please find attached photo's. (A few photo's are too big to upload, I will adjust them and post them later on.) Im really gratefull for ANY info or leads you can give me.
