Photo Identification

Postby copley » Tue Dec 31, 2013 5:03 pm

I have recently been passed some documents that were in my grandfathers papers. They include a photo of a soldier on horseback; there is also a written message on the back which I struggle to decipher all of. It is dated France 1917.
Where could I send the photo for identification of ether person, rank and / or regiment and also help to decipher the writing?
Many thanks

Sian - why don't you begin by uploading scans of the photo and caption from reverse here. We will do our best to decipher the writing for you and identify the regiment of the soldier. You don't say whether or not you think it may be your grandfather? If you have a possible candidate, then we can also look for corroborating evidence.
