Old photos from Iraq

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Brian Report 12 Mar 2013 18:10

I have three photos taken by my father in Iraq between 1920 and 1925.
1) Eddie Ross in uniform maybe in the Royal Engineers
2) Sgt Piggot in uniform dated 1920 unknown unit
3) Eddie Ross grave marker

My father was in the RASC in Iraq and he took lots of photos he did not however really explain who these people were.
Does anybody out there have any possible links to them.
Contact me through Genes if you know of them.
Good hunting

Edddie might be Edward - try searching trees for anyone who has an E Ross in their trees. You could try and guessimate his year of birth.
