Barry Ray Year: 1916 Villages: Pease PottagePease Pottage army camp (8 of 10)
The picture shows several soldiers temporarily resident in Pease Pottage, living in their tented encampment on the edge of the village.
They appear to have been joined by several civilians although I can recognise only two.
Seated on the left wearing a waistcoat is my grandfather, Harry Ray, accompanied by his middle son. five-years- old Joe Ray. They lived at the bottom of Pease Pottage Hill.
The Large Version shows a close up.
The reverse of the postcard carries a message from “Will” to his sister. I assume he appears in the photograph although he talks in the third person.
