Old Photos of Witham

Soldiers marching past Freebornes, 3 Newland Street (distant)

Taken: March 1915 to March 1916, Ref: M1897

Soldiers during First World War. Royal Warwickshire Regiment (information from Ian Hook,formerly of Essex Regiment Museum). Marching in Newland Street. Building behind is 3 Newland Street (Freebornes farm). Also visible on both sides are cedar trees in the Grove. Probably the same occasion as M1898 and M1899, which came with it, and as M2190 and M2191. If so, it is the 2nd/7th Warwicks, who were in Witham March 1915 to March 1916.
See the post headed “First World War. Territorial Soldiers …”, for detailed information about these soldiers by Ian Hook, formerly curator of the Essex Regiment Museum.
