Ernest Lionel Forward Capt RAMC

Recommended Posts

I have a photograph believed to be of this chap from my grandmother's collection.

It is labelled Captain Forward (with whip[don;t worry it really isn't THAT type of photo :-)] ) and friends Colchester Barracks. [undated but c 1916] 

However the records indicate that Captain EL Forward was based in the North of England.

Anyone able to assist in finding out what he was doing in Colchester (with whip :-D) - to elaborate the picture is of him in the driving seat of a car stuffed with other officers, he is holding a horse whip- obviously a joke shot. The background is of rows of brick buildings with a couple of soldiers standing watching so could quite likely be barracks somewhere.

There is a service file at Kew under WO374/25138, which may detail his movements, equally might not as most files were weeded of pages seen as unnecessary (between the wars) !

Not yet digital so needs to be seen in situ.

Ancestry shows his address (per directory and medical registry) as The Coppice in Niottinghamshire (index only)  during the war years.
