Brother of Caroline Austin, brother-in-law of Thomas Richard Austin. He served with the Leicestershire Regiment, and was awarded Military Medal. Killed July 5th 1917, he is buried at Metz-en Couture Communal Cemetery, Pas de Calais.

My grandmother's brother, to whom she sent a card of her and her two children, which was returned with his effects. He is so handsome, cocky, full of life! In the group photo I think it is he, near the back on the left of the column, in a light suit.


Editor's Comment:
Three single shots and one group photograph of men in Hospital 'Blues' Uniform.
