 Hello Thinus,

I thought you may be interested to know that the person portrayed in picture #10 is Mu grandfather, Captain Isaac "King" Lehr who i believe was the Adjutant of 1sqdn. 


I recently came into possession of some of his military effects and photographs which I will scan and mail to you if you would be interested in adding them to your wonderful website.
