This is the face of a soldier from Rugby who most likely served in the First World War.

The image has been uploaded to the ‘The Army Children of the First World War’ online project– part of the First World War Centenary Partnership’s programme to inspire young and old to connect with the lives, stories and impact of the First World War.

A name has been written in blue ink on the reverse of the photo: ‘Raymond Jewell / Brownsover’.

The birth of a Raymond F Jewell, whose mother’s surname was Channing, was registered in 1916. The marriage of Walter F Jewell and Gladys M Channing was registered in 1913.

The project’s organisers are keen to discover more about him. The photo can be found at http://bit.ly/Faced260 where any extra information can also be added.
