KOYLI WW1 France 1917

Taken at Poperhinge, France in .

My 23 year old Uncle Walter Speight having
what seems to be a wash on the battle fields of France!
B Company 6th platoon 3 section Kings own Yorkshire Light infantry (K.O.Y.L.I.)

Sadly Walter Speight was killed soon after this photograph was taken
he died of wounds on the 10th June 1917. I have his Soldiers own Diary which is a wonderfully preserved document of his short lived army career.
