A great image.

In these pictures they all look so young - and I love the way that in so many pictures they are ALL puffing away on cigarettes!

Most of mine have little more information than...

Hi Irv

I'm afraid that is one of the undated images. I've always assumed it to be one of the later images as all the recruits are now wearing peaked caps. Some of the pictures shown are taken of...

Nice to see this thread is still of interest to people.

If anyone is interested I still have many more images that I purchased as part of this group. I could post some more of them if you want.

Hello John

Thanks for your input. I'll scan the back of the card later - don't think it will really help though. It simply states 'POST CARD' above 'Carte Postale - Postkarte'. The back is...

Hello John

I have attempted to enlarge the following images as much as I can - any larger and they become too distorted. I have attached images of most of the insignia being worn in the hope that...

Hello everyone. Many thanks for your replies.

Here is a potted history of Deal which may be of interest.

In 1861 the RM Depot was established at Deal - at first in the East Barracks, then...

I'm afraid he did write 'Broderick' Grumpy! And I accept yours is the correct spelling.

Re Deal. I know it continued as the RM School of Music until it closed but I think that all recruit training...

Hello Ray

Many thanks for enlightening me! A very interesting point (no pun intended!). It will be interesting to see if anyone else has any further information.

I'll check through all the other photos and see if any of them have your father's name on the back. Most of them appear to date from approximately the same period and the majority of them...

Thanks for the replies everyone.

Don't think its the Boer War as the rifle used then was the Magazine Lee-Enfield. These men appear to be carrying the snub-nosed Short Magazine Lee-Enfield which...
