Mark VIII photo


Sidearm

Recommended Posts

This photo was taken at the works of the Locomotive Co of America in Bridgeport, Connecticut on 24 January 1919.  Amongst the civilians (Locomotive staff) and American military, there's several British officers and an RNVR officer.

 

Does anyone recognise any of the faces, please?

 

Thanks

Many thanks, but unfortunately that doesn't accord with information I've just received from another source.  The man standing fifth from the right is Major Norman Holden, Deputy Commissioner, Mechanical Warfare Department (Overseas & Allies), whilst the man in naval uniform is Lt. R.A. Robertson who was in charge of Inspection and Progress for MWD(O&A).

Wasn't Holden Deputy commissioner of the Mechanical Warfare Department of the British War MIssion from October 1918?   Lt Rudolph Alexander Robertson, RNVR, appears in the BWM Who's Who above; - "Joined Mission June 8 1918"
