WHO IS HE ?
This page is a really long shot
Here we will place photographs of Servicemen who we believe to be Newmarket lads
No idea who they are at present, nor even if died or returned home
Sherborn and E Young were well known Newmarket photographers of the time, much of their work being used as postcards
Thanks to the massive collection of Newmarket postcards of the late Roger Newman and of Peter Norman, we can explore this possible source of identification.
It may just be possible that someone does recognise them from photos in the family album, in which case we would really like to know
