I HAVE forwarded on this email to you at The Black Country Bugle on the suggestion of Maureen Waldron, assistant archivist at Sandwell Archives service.
Would any of your readers be able to help me identify this soldier?
By coincidence there was a Canadian soldier who had the number 71319 and he was called Evan Pritchard Thomas.
However, to me with an untrained eye, it looks like a British World War One uniform.
I look forward to hearing from anyone who can help.
