Hi

I've been out of it for quite a while due to work commitment, but have just received some information, which may be of interest to others.  I have 5 photographs of soldiers, two JT Beadle postcards my grandfather sent to his mother at Christmas and a postcard of Asiago in Italy, where I guess 22nd were located.

I was thinking of uploading scans of these - please could you advise whether there's a special procedure or area of the forum where I should send these?

Cheers

Phil W
