I have the date of the wedding but no name?

I have this photo of a wedding and the date Nov 7th 1925 - I believe from other clues that I have that the wedding was in Bath or the surrounding area. I have the name Billy but nothing else, is it possible to just search by the date of the wedding? All the sites I've tried so far want names as well as location...

Medal Citations

Does anyone know how or whether it is possible to access the citations for WW1 medals. I have obtained copies of the medal records from the National Archives but they don't show the reason the medal was awarded.

Dear All

Building ID

Can anyone help identify this photo which belongs to my grand mother's photo album? She hasn't a clue as to what the building is or when, where or who took the picture. It was probably taken in the Dewsbury, Middlestown or Netherton area in West Yorkshire. There is a notice board in the foreground but I am unable to read it. A rough date of when it was taken may be helpful.

Can anyone help identify motorbike

I know this is a long shot but can anyone tell me anything about the transportation in this picture - I think the photo is probably pre WW1 - the man driving was born in 1860 - anyone know what the bike/'bathchair' might be?!

The driver was an engineer so I guess he could have built it himself or at least adapted it to carry his wife on the front?

Please can you date this photo?

Hi, this is my first post here, hope I do it right! I think this photo is of my 2 x great granddad, Andrew Shaw. What I would like to know is a possible date for it so I could tell his age. He was born in 1841 and died in 1908. It's difficult to tell how old he is - could be 20s, 30s or 40s.

This other photo is definitely Andrew in ...
