I didn’t have a chance to post this yesterday for VE day as I was working.
This is a picture of my Grandad, Albert Leadbetter, with his mates in Egypt, Circa 1938/39.
He is the chap in the middle, at the back, with his arm slung around the chap in front.
A few years ago, when I was scanning and preserving photos on Flikr, My Dad gave me a tin of photos and post cards that belonged to his Dad, my Grandad.
The photos were all taken or collected during his time with Field Marshall Montgomery ‘Monty’, in Egypt circa 1938/39.
The post cards were all personal and not from my Nan!!
The photos were a combination of photos that he’d taken or that he’d ‘retrieved’ from possibly dead bodies.
A lot of the photos on Flikr have a description. If there was any writing on the back of the photo, I made sure it went on the description of the photo, so when you click on a photo, scroll down to see if the photo has a little story.
A few of the photos are quite graphic, so be warned.
The following is a link to the album on Flikr that shows the whole tin of photos. I’m not sure if linking to Flikr will work this way as I usually have to send an invite to join flikr to get access to my account, so if the link doesn’t work, let me know!!
For anyone with a Flikr account, just look for Mumofthreedevils.
