I would just like to thank both Viv Irvine and Bob Stephen for the answer to my query about the WW1 survivors picture. The date provided fits in with the research I have done.

Viv Irvine says ... "It was taken on 19th July 1919, Peace Day. Not sure where it was taken though."

I am very interested in the photograph you have on your site of the "Rayleigh WW1 survivors, a gathering of 113 men who came back" and wondered if anyone could give me a date (mainly month and year) when this photograph was taken or point me in the right direction to find out? I have been researching my Grandad's war record and this piece of information could prove very useful to me. My Grandad was George Walter Harvey who is mentioned in the write up about R A Harvey (son of Richard & Ellen) as being still on active service at the time this picture was taken. Any information would be very gratefully received.
