Album of Horror by Albert Prichett
Album of Horror
Large album of photographs from the Western Front, many of which do not shy away from the horrors of war (e.g., firing squads, dead soldiers)
Grandfather, Albert Prichett, of Birmingham, was an ordinary soldier in the conflict, and obtained this material during his service at the Western Front. He may have put the album together and perhaps annotated some of the photographs. The family story is that it may have been obtained following hand to hand combat.
