Researching ancestor and have a photocopy of a photograph; written on the back is "Tom Monkman".
Having browsed your site and forum questions/responses I am left wondering whether my picture is genuine as it seems to be just staged with the person's head inserted, a la seaside photo?
My ancestor, recorded as Thomas Monkman, was born in 1868 and appears on census records through to 1911 except for 1901 where his wife is listed as head of family. He reappears on the 1911 census along with an 8 year old child, so he was "away from home" some time between 1891 and 1902?
There is an army attestation record for 1901 to join PofW West Yorkshire Regiment but the Birth Year is 1 year out and the Birth parish and town are wrong.
There is an Anglo-Boer War record for a Sergeant T Monkman 1 Volunteer Battalion West Yorks but there is no detail to connect to my ancestor?
There are some 1st WW records of CSM later Major T Monkman but his Death is recorded as 1913.
Would appreciate any opinions of the picture and guidance as to how I could find any detail of his service.
Many thanks in anticipation.
