Alfred's Tea Tin
In Alfred's photo collection there is this Tea Tin as you can see
it looks like a bullett hole in it
This happened during WW1 but where or when I dont know. I
do have a postcard to my grandmother Ethel dated 28th Oct 18 from a
T Taylor which may be connected to this incident. I have attached a
copy. (See Below)
"At Dover Castle on the 18th May 1927, a Smoking Concert was held to say goodbye to Sgt Alfred White following his retirement from the Regiment.
He was presented with a clock.
This clock is still running today in the home of his grandaughter Yvonnne Ashwell""
