September 25th 1915 
'Uncle Henry...'  The story of one man’s war. 

An old family snapshot: a sporty looking young man steps out into the sunlight with a cup of tea, he holds the saucer in both hands. They sometimes shake badly and he doesn't want the cup to rattle in the saucer and spill the tea. He is wearing a sweater under his jacket. It has been a cool summer and he feels the cold. The day is his birthday, Monday 30th August 1915. He is 33. 26 days later he will be dead.

At the bottom of the photo one of his nieces has written; 'Uncle Henry...'

He was my Great Uncle. This is the story of his life, and my journey to retrace his steps last year.
