(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: Cecil Edwards in WWI

I love old pictures of WWI soldiers, don’t you?

Maybe it’s because they wore the big round hats, like my husband did when he served as a Drill Sergeant.  I think they looked very sharp in uniform.

This is my great-great grandfather, John Edwards Jr.’s cousin, Cecil Francis Edwards (1894-1969).

The picture was given to me by another Edwards researcher and I’m grateful for it – Thank you!!  I really wish I had a similar one of my great-grandfather, Alfred Edwards, in his uniform.

    I feel the same way. Love those WWI pictures. Love the hats (although Rick never wore one)!ReplyCancel
