Inscription on back says ‘Scheveningen, Holland. Where I met Pte[?] Rudkin about April 1918 in Hospital’. Sheila Ellis who gave the picture to me is a Rudkin but she doesn’t think this is one of hers. She was given it by George Thompson, coal merchant, but comparison with his other photos suggest that it is not his writing on the back. Ian Hook said in an email ‘being in Hospital in Holland is typical of being either interned or being a POW in hopsital prior to repatriation, either in wartime or after the Armistice’.
