Mystery photo

By Patricia W

World War One work party?

This picture of my grandfather Edward William Parker, 4th from the left, front row, I believe to have been taked in the Hatfield area.

As there are two WWI soldiers on either side of the work party one would guess the picture to have been taken 1914-1918.

Questions are:

Does any one recognize the place/house?

Does anyone recognize any of the other men?

Why would the picture have been taken?

Why are there two soldiers present?

If you have any ideas please add a comment below.

  • I do not know but I have an idea. They seem to be working to surface a road, and the soldiers might be there because the men might be prisoners of war being made to do the work of making the road.
