As my old Eyes are not yet the best, can you ID (or say what the badge Emblem is depicting?? }

If known the at least we know the Regiment!

Think it is:


The pic was found in my late mothers belongings and was for her aunt from a David Hammond, possibly: 17886 Hammond, David West Riding Regiment 15852 Private. Would appreciate any further info on this chap. Regards, Keith. PS. I am more used to Merchant Navy research hence, new to this, fingers crossed.

So it would then be the West Riding Regiment WW1
Duke of Wellington's West Riding Regiment !??

As i have a link that shows Not Secure Keith, i cannot load it here, i will send it in a PM ,
You can then open it in a separate Browser ,dont worry its safe enough,just that any Links marked in address bar as not safe we cannot use here.
I dont know if this Chaps name may be included in the long list, would have to go through one by one and see if his Number matches??

The only thing I remember about the first World War uniform is my Granddads gas cape. when I started school in 1936, it was what I wore as a raincoat, I can remember the point hanging down behind me dragging in the mud. My Grandad had died from Gas poisoning in 1926.
