I wanted to share this family photo of my great uncle  Harry Richards with the community. Location: Staffordshire, England. Date: approx 1914, maybe later, I have not been able to find the actual date.

I am glad he came safely home, I had two great great uncles that were killed in WWI, another great uncle killed WW2 and I have been adding more distant family and sadly I had a father and son both killed WWI, and then another father killed WW1 and his son killed WW2,. and then a group of  two cousins killed in WW2. It is getting a little depressing, the last profile I checked that was KIA in WW1, I thought no not another one. I can not do many more profiles like this.
