Born to Military Life
John (Jack) Bates
postcards letters Princess Mary Gift Box photograph
John (Jack) Bates was a career soldier. He served in the Boer War and in India. He was born on a troopship in 1878. In the civilian photograph attached, he is the gentleman in the centre of the family group. He suffered a gas attack. I also brought postcards, a post-war discharge letter and letter of good conduct, notes on war pensions, a 1914 Princess Mary Christmas Gift Box (contents intact) and a photo taken later of John marching with a poppy wreath.
