In the trenches…

Garry Walton commission brings WW1 hero to life


I love a good, old-fashioned tale of bravery – especially when they feature the unfortunate young men who were thrust into the battlefields of WW1. One of the best parts of my job is commissioning the illustrations that accompany such stories.

This particular image is printed in Your Family Tree issue 154 (which is on sale now) and shows a reader’s great-grandfather who served in the 10th Royal Hussars (Prince of Wales’ Own) during the conflict.

I think you’ll agree that Garry Walton has captured the feel of WW1 perfectly in this image.
