Title

A Royal Field Artillery soldier's family.

A photograph of a soldier's family of four

Description

    • A real photographic postcard
    • There is nothing written on this postcard to tell us the names of the family of four or the photographic studio in which they were photographed. Zooming in on the younger girl’s eyes appears to show that they are not quite ‘right’, but then that may just be the photograph. The two girls’ soldier–father is holding a swagger stick. He wears a bandolier and lanyard, and the shoulder title on his left arm says ‘RFA’, which stands for Royal Field Artillery. His cap bears the cap badge of the Royal Artillery.
