Have you looked lately Kris? There are loads of armed forces cards/pictures. I searched Burnley in Collectables category.

Thanks, I had a look. Those soldier cards have been on offer for a while...a little on the expensive side.

I thought that too. They could sell the job lot and probably do better out of it after listing fees are taken into consideration.

I think it's very over-priced though. She would possibly sell it if she dropped the price a bit.

Yes, I think they were midgets.

Considering the condition, they might sell the card for £3 or so, not much more.

This one would be a nice one to have on your tree - a good photo & I found his miitary service records on Ancestry too + the 1901 census. You'd be up and running with this one. Wish it was one of mine . . .
