Wow, WW1, such a long time ago.
You need to start an archival blog of all your photos!
(Like you need MORE work to do, right Vicci??!!)

Uncle Salem. Hum, this album is educating me. I never knew he wa in the military. He looks very much like Uncle Salem though, just a bit younger than I remember him, but thin and proud as always. I liked him a lot.
