My dad at war - New Guinea



A friend sent me this image, I have shown it to all of my family, and we agree it's our dad, second from the right, in New Guinea with his Regiment. (lower image)

He was a 'gunner' with the 25 Pounders, (the size of the shell) and in later years wrote the official biography of the war and his Regiment. It was a huge book!

I just love the power of a photograph, thank goodness someone raised a camera to his eye and snapped the shot! All good!

You are lucky to have had someone take the pictures and just as lucky they where kept. the downside to digital is many people don't save them.
