These are pictures from one of three albums of photographs taken by someone presumed to be in the Army Post Office Corps.

The pictures come from the collection of Cee Lydon whose permission to reproduce the images is gratefully received.

This first album measures 14cm wide by 11cm high. The pages are made from thick paper into the top of which the photos have been inserted. The window for the photograph measures approximately 8cm x 5cm in landscape mode.

As would be expected, the pictures are of varying quality and I have tried to edit them to bring out as much detail as possible. It is likely that these pictures have never been seen before so it is fantastic that they have been preserved.

While the photographer is unknown, each photo does include an annotation.
