The flowers left thick at nightfall in the wood
This Eastertide call into mind the men,
Now far from home, who, with their sweethearts, should
Have gathered them and will do never again.

this is Edmund James from 8 Platoon. Do you think he's the lad at the back on his own towards the left?

this is Harry Hardman, also of 8 Platoon and also in the photograph. Anyone with far better eyesight than me able to identify him?  He was killed along with his brother in law Edmund James and 9 others from 8 Platoon on February 7th 1916
