|Title||Photograph of Charles W. Carr and Ciss, his sister, and Aunt Em (3)|
|Notes||Sergeant Charles W. Carr stands with what appears to be a walking stick, next to his sister Ciss (Francis), and 'Aunt Em'. The note on the back records that this was taken Tuesday 28 May 1918 outside Mrs Pugh's bungalow. Charles' son Tony Carr explains that this was in Llandrindod Wells, (Radnorshire - now Powys, Wales), and that this would have been only about 9 months after Charles was seriously wounded - shot in the legs by machine gun bullets - during the the attack of the 2/5th Battalion Gloucestershire Regiment on Pond Farm during the battle of Paschendale. He is wearing wound stripes on his arm. About this time, after convalescing, Charles was training in Ireland to become an instructor.|
