First World Letters Written by Frederick G. Gale and 6 related photographs

£150.00 Out Of Stock

Product description

One letter dated 3rd July 1919 , address Sergt. F. Gale 780 Coy M.Y.R.G., 36, Indian Brigade, North Persia. The second dated May 16 and the words 'same address'. This letter refers to a photo of 'me and some of the boys' most probably Number 2.

The medal index card for Frederick Gale shows that he was attached to the Army Service Corps, 780 was the Motor Transport Company and the photographs would appear to confirm this.

Our researches have unearthed the following information about the unit Frederick Gale was attached to,
the fourth battalion of the Hampshire Regiment a Territorial Force. In Nov. 1916 this Battalion was transfered to the 36th Indian Brigade and on the 2nd Jan. 1918 entered Persia with Lt. Col. Matthew's Motor Mobile Company.

Condition; both letters are written in pencil on lined paper and are clean and legible. 3 of the photos are printed as post cards, two faded but the details still clear.

An interesting and unusual collection.
