Decipher Family Photographs: Training
A typical photograph sent home by the eager new recruits to show off the new uniform, many taken in front of the bell tents the men slept in, whilst training somewhere in the British Isles. One of the men is even sporting a swagger stick, purely a piece of vanity, discarded before transfer overseas.
