Portrait Photos of Sergeant Major James Francis Hampton, Royal Army Medical Corps ( RAMC) - Served Boer War and all of WW1
A lovely Victorian / WW1 grouping this - two original large card mounted portraits taken by a Hampshire photographer, and each annotated to the reverse as being of this soldier. He is wearing this Boer War medals. His WW1 paybook accompanies the lot. This confirms he enlisted in 1896 and served throughout WW1, embarking overseas 19th February 1915 and the final entry confirms his entitlement to four blue overseas service chevrons for 4 years service. Great clear images with lots of insignia. Worthy of further research or reuniting with his medals!

Edwardian Real Postcard - Royal Engineers Officer living the Good Life

Where did we all go wrong! Postally used 1904, message to reverse. Some minor corner wear, but otherwise in very good condition.

Pipe Major Royal Scots Fusiliers Oilette Style Edwardian Postcard
An attractive oilette style postcard photograph, predates WW1 as he seems to be wearing a Boer War pair of medals with clasps. Postally unused and reverse blank except for publisher's details: E.F.A. Military Series No 81. Very slight corner wear otherwise in near excellent condition. Interesting that the title is Scotch rather than Scots Fusiliers.

Pre WW1 Patriotic Coloured Art Card by Raphael Tuck - What are you doing to guard the homes of England?
A stirring image of volunteers from the Napoleonic times to the Volunteers of 1860s and beyond, cajoling an idle gentleman of means ( or a rake!) to join the territorial / auxiliary forces. References to a quote from George V so this dates to 1912 - 1914 era. The poem on the reverse makes interesting reading. In very good condition, with slight marks suggesting it had been very lightly glued at one time into an album.

Magnificent WW1 Original Postcard of Scots Guards on the march - pipers to the front!
One of my favourite WW1 images of a guards battalion on the march - are we downhearted - No. Postally unused and no corner wear, slight wrinkles from storage in an album. Love the fact they can puff on pipes and smoke at that pace!
