Who's Charlie?

Postby phsvm » Fri Feb 21, 2014 9:50 pm

If just been given this photograph of someone we think is a relative but, beyond his name obviously being Charlie, we have no idea who he is.

Can anyone tell me what this picture is saying about his military career?

Apologies for the size of the image. My first attempt (and probably my last)!

Many thanks.

Can anyone give me an idea of his rank and what date this could have been taken. I'm guessing WW1 but I don't really have any idea.

Thanks.

Many thanks. Now all I need to do is work out where he fits in the family tree!
