Here’s a quick but very interesting enquiry from reader Michael Williams, whose enquiry reaches me via Facebook.
Michael’s uncle, David Stokes, lived in Sandhills, Shire Oak and sent this picture home. I’m assuming it’s Second World War, but it may well not be.
Does anyone know which regiment this image may be of, and in which theatre of war they were combatant? From he uniform and rolled up sleeves, I’d say it was somewhere hot or tropical.
Can any military buffs help with this, or info on David Stokes? I’m sure the Walsall Wood, and Brownhills elders may have something to say.
