I hope this qualifies as vintage. The soldier is my father and the photo was taken in 1915 before he left for three years helping to fight in a war in the Middle East. Nothing has changed it seems. Young men and women have taken his place there - ninety three years on.
My father lived to the age of 102, passing away in 1996.
