Faces on a Train
Anyhow, at least one of them looks quite pleased to be going wherever the train is taking them.

I suppose that keeping the receipt was a way of remembering his most enjoyable leave with the Dyer family in Pinner. Or maybe he was just a 'bower bird' and kept things like this - I do, too.

I also have a book of postcards of Le Crotoy, intact and in fairly good condition. Quite a pretty little town.
I believe that the scribble on bottom of this photograph says "Le Crotoy Hotel Marine"
I can only guess that this came to Jack from his army friend Clement Till, who took up teaching after returning from the war. Either that, or the SS Wiltshire that brought Jack home called in to Adelaide (because a lot of the 43 Btn boys were from South Australia). Jack and 'Tillie' kept in touch, and I can remember Grandad going to South Australia to visit his old mate on at least one occasion in (about) the 1950s or 60s.
You can see some the photos Clem sent over the years at http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v40/geoffd/Clarence_W_Till/
