Recommended Posts


I have recently found 3 photo Albums taken by my Gt Uncle Captain Alfred Christopher Pearson (known as Chris by the Family). These are on top of the 40 loose photos I had already found some years ago. These photos have decayed with age but they still show the conditions of the troops in Training at Blackdown Barracks. Their Sailing from Avonmouth to Malta, Lemos and their landing at Gallipoli. It covers his return home after being injured on 10th August 1915, Aghgl Dere Gully vicinity Kunja Dere, The Farm, Anzac. Then the photos carry on on their march to Kut, the 2nd Siege, and then up to when he was injured again on 29th March 1917. here is just some of his photos   

1 - Battalion Resting during route March

2 - Officers Resting on board H.M.T. Royal Edward

3 - Post card of H.M.T. Royal Edward which "Chris" sent to his sister Enid from Avonmouth before they sailed.

5 - "Chris" relaxing at their encampment , Gallipoli Aug 1915

I have also found a Notebook written in Verse by Chris which I may post extract latter.
