Perhaps we shouldn’t really have this photo in Market Lavington Museum for Reg was born in Devizes and moved to West Lavington with his family when he was less than ten years old. His father was postmaster and grocer at Littleton Panell. Reg followed in father’s footsteps, and no doubt took plenty of his own for he became a postman.
However, it looks as though Reg signed up for military service during World War One for here we have him in a typical posed picture.
And it looks as though Reg used this as his Christmas Card 100 years ago in 1915.
We don’t actually know much about Reg, but as we celebrate Christmas 2015, we might remember that 100 years ago things were very different.
