Have been rooting through a few boxes, came across a sepia p/c of a soldier.

from checking cap badges I say a Fusilier regt.

on the front embossed J.E Hunt & son, 185 Portobello rdw (presume photographer)

on the back is written in pencil 14598.

using sdgw there is a possibility that it is

14598 Private Harry Wilson

17th Batallion

Lancashire Fusiliers

Died Home 10/08/15

Born Rochdale Lancs

Enlisted Rochdale.

I know its only a possibility but anyone have other pics of him or know of his family.

can then decide what to do with it.

Hi I don't think the badge is a the Lancashire Fusiliers, I think it might be the Royal Fusiliers.

Do be aware that the pencilled number may well be the photographers reference number. I doubt someone would only write their service number on a personal photo.
