That's terribly sad Gunmaker. And a horrible consequence of the war. The saddest thing is he probably barely got to know his family. Thanks for posting. Vv.
You are quite right Vivienne, I suspect none of his Grandchildren new he even existed. The child born in 1921, my Uncle Harry, did give me some photographs of him all taken at the Old Manor Hospital by family that had visited him. I have attached a picture taken when he was in the Guards. It is thought to be a mock up of Court Martial for training purposes. If it was taken before August 1900 it may have come in handy for him because on the 14th August 1900 he was sentenced to 56 days in jankers for disobeying lawful orders and refusing an escort. My grandfather is the second from the left wearing a pillbox hat.
