Henry Lee-Thomas sent home two small photo albums and a post card from World War 1. These have fallen in to my hands and are in unusually good shape considering their age. These are the original albums which were mailed home in 1915 and 1916. That makes them almost 100 years old. I have just scanned them today and want to share with everyone. The first album was sent to Myrtle Moore (Myrtle Thredgold) who was Henry's sister-in-law and Ruby Thredgold's sister. The second album was to a "Miss Pickering." I have no idea who this person was. The last two photos are of a post card which Henry sent to his wife and baby. (Ruby and Maurice). The post card caption says, "The Strafer Strafed." I looked up "Strafer" on "google" and found the following definition:
Verb: To attack (ground troops for example) with gun or cannon from a low flying aircraft.
Noun: An atttack of machine gun or cannon fire from low flying aircraft.
Common World War 1 slogan.
This will make sense when you see the last photo. Here is the link to this group of photos:
