Can you help to identify a photo?

By Mal Butler Nov 24, 2023

IW Observer reader, Paul Bradley, is asking if anyone can identify the soldiers in this photo?

Paul, from Brighstone, said: “The original framed picture was found at the Brighstone Reading Rooms during a clean up. There is no information on the back of it.

“There are a number of similar images of groups of local men after the Great War and members of the WW2 Home Guard but I have not seen this one before.

“I wonder if any of your readers have any more information? The location looks quite distinctive too. It would be strange if this was not Island-related, after being found in the Reading Rooms.”
