How to find a picture

Postby johnfhumphreys » Fri Jan 18, 2013 6:37 pm

My Great-uncle was killed in Normandy in June 1944 . He is buried in La Delivrande War Cemetery , and I have a picture of his grave . He was in the Staffordshire Yeomanry , Royal Armoured Corps .

Sadly , there are no family pictures of him . How would I go about seeking out a picture from the army , or was it rare for them to do individual pictures ?

Many thanks , John .

I would doubt that the War Office woud have a copy of a photograph, have you looked for an archive for the Staffordshire Yeomanry as they may have a photograph in a history of the unit.
