Can't remember if I've submitted this before but Pte Joseph Lamb (21202) is second row from back, 3rd from left. He was with the 22nds until losing his leg at Broodseinde in Oct 17. His previous military career with the KRRC in Oct 14 lasted 32 days before being considered " unlikely to make an efficient soldier".
