    Sjt. Tom Willey Lincolnshire Yeomanry

    I don't know very much about my great grandfather, Tom Willey but so far I have learned that he joined the Lincolnshire Yeomanry, having been a farmer in North Willingham, Lincolnshire.

    My grandmother was born in 1911, so aged 3 at the time of her father going to war. My great grandfather took his horse with him and served in the Middle East although I don't know which campaigns.

    I have a photo of my great grandfather is a parade through a street in the Middle East or possibly North Africa. I do not know the country or city in the picture. I also do not know the year of the photograph. I knew he was in the photo because he is right at the front of the parade with his sergeant stripes very clear along with two officers. He also looks exactly like my father!

    My great grandfather returned from the war and lived in New Bollingbroke, Lincolnshire until his death in the 1960s. I would love to find out more about his life and war service.

    My grandmother is now deceased and not much information was passed on to my father. I hope to scan the photo (which is huge) and enter onto the computer to preserve it in another format. Another fact about the photo is that I think it was an army photographer, the name on the bottom being based in Aldershot.
