Chris,

I think young Hargreaves picture is absolutely fantastic and it is just such images I hope will be posted. If I recall you used this image in your recent book? It is wonderful and I am sure someone will know the patch.

All so far in a couple of days I have been amazed at the response. Please all keep posting as I personally think this is a wonderful thread bringing those long gone back if only briefly.

I think pcs are an excellant way of building up a uniform collection. Original items are hard to source and costly and pcs are relatively cheap. Excellant resource.

Regards and looking forward to all future images.

Here is an Old Forester John, have you ever seen such an old lad as this in uniform. I bet he never made it to France but possibly did to Sunderland to the 3rd Battalion?
Looks like a Derby man to me, :whistle:
