Hi Keerthi,

Welcome to the forum, great photograph thank you for sharing it. If you want to find out more about the service of your grandfather and Gret Uncle, a good place to start is to visit the parent site 'The Long Long Trail' (see link at the top of the web page), there you will find information on how to research a soldier.
