Royal Marine Light Infantry 1915/16

Recommended Posts

Hi as a newbie to the forum - forgive me if this has been raised before but..

Does anyone know where this image was taken? It is outside a pit/colliery office and is in late 1915 or early 1916 and shows a group of Royal Marine Light Infantry.

My guess is that it could be one of the Tinsley Park locations - my Grandfather and one of my Great Uncles worked there before they enlisted.

I found the image being used on an information board in a CWGC cemetery in France near where another my Great Uncles went missing in November 1916. He was in the same battalion as my Grandfather but as far as I know didn't work in the colliery.

One of the men in the image bears a striking resemblance to my father - so I am assuming he's 'one of us'.

Any info would be helpful - thanks in anticipation.
