Re AWM Photo E01750, the name of Capt Howard Charles Carter should be amended to read "Capt Howard Charles PARKER". Front Row, third from left.

See following correction advice from AWM: On 2/06/2020 11:08 AM, PhotoFilmSound wrote: Dear Frank, Thank you for contacting curators at the Memorial with a correction to the caption for E01750 and for providing us with helpful supporting documentation. This typographical error appears to have been made when the caption was re-written to expand the officers’ names from their initials to their first and middle names. I have now amended the caption in our database to correctly identify your grandfather as Capt Howard Charles Parker. This correction should refresh to the website in the next 48 hours. Thank you for your interest in the work of the Memorial.
