outside the Sub-Depot Medical Stores, 13 General Hospital Suez, sometime in 1943(I think). I believe this photo shows the staff of the Embarkation Medical Officer.

My late grandad Albert Morrell served with the RAMC 1941-1944. In both of these group photos Albert is standing far right, unfortunately I have no names to put to any of the other faces. I would be very interested to hear if anyone recognises any of the other gentlemen in these two photos.

The 70th ('Young Soldiers') Battalion, London Irish Rifles, taken in March 1941 at Wembley.

The 70th ('Young Soldiers') Battalion, London Irish Rifles, taken in March 1941 at Wembley.

"The big chap in the front with folded arms is PSM Flynn and there's only one in there with silver shamrocks on his collar (indicating drummer/bugler in the pipe band)...and that's me!

The chap in the dark uniform and peaked cap was the resident fireman, I believe.

There were a number of '70th battalions' formed in 1940-41, so-called 'Young Soldiers Battalions'. They consisted mainly of under-20s and were all volunteers, not conscripts. The London Irish was an offshoot of the King's Royal Rifle Corps.

The site where this photo was taken was the GEC Sports Club in Wembley which was requisitioned by the War Dept as a training centre.

I later transferred to the Royal Navy, which was lucky in a way since I understand that most of the LIR suffered heavy casualties against the Germans in the fierce fighting in Italy in 1943."

Little Soldiers

The photo' was taken in 1940/41 outside the home of the Barnett Family in Oliver St., South Bank, Middlesbrough.
The boys are, L to R back row: Norman Turnbull; Frank Barry; Jim Barnett. Front row L to R; Stan Barnett; Harold Millican.
Norman Frank and Stan would be 8 at this time, Harold and Jim a year younger. Norman was the officer (self elected because he had the gun) Harold's "tin hat" has a wider brim than the others because it is a replica "Air Raid Warden's" tin hat. Harold's father was an Air Raid Warden.

My grandfather, Edgar Foster, was with the RAF in Canada, does anyone remember him? I would love to hear from the Allerby family of Winnipeg, who were good friends during his time there.
