Tank mask soldier help


Recommended Posts


I recently purchased a WWI tank mask from a family in the UK. The only info on its owner is the folowing:

- The family is from Waton, west of Norfolk

- It belonged to a family memebr a Reginald Wyer Sr who served in WWI.

- After the war Reginald senior drove Traction Engines

- His son Reginald Wyer Jr. who served in WWII in the Royal Engineers in N Africa,carried his fathers WWI mask with him.

That all the info I have. Im new to this type od research and any help would be appreciated.
