Huge numbers of men were killed in World War One but the majority of our soldiers, sailors and airmen did return home. In Market Lavington and Easterton a day in 1919 was made the welcome home day with a meal and a big group photograph. We have a framed copy of the photo.
It can be hard to photograph a picture under glass, particularly head on, but here’s a best attempt.
We can do a bit of a zoom on this – in two parts.
The caption on the back of the frame gives one bit of information – but we are still unable to be certain as to which man in the photo it refers to.
19th from left, 2nd row from back is Thomas Maynard of the Coldstream Guards and Easterton
Any further information would be gratefully received.
