The author's great-grandfather, Ernest J.Woolf, fourth from right, served in France during World War I.
Gunner Ernest James Woolf, Royal Garrison Artillery, British Expeditionary Force, France. WW1
During WW1 the family lived in Peaslake, Surrey, for a time. My Gran is the little girl standing with her brother. That's Ernest, my great-grandfather with the bike, and I think that's Florence Ellen, my g-gran with the little girl on the wall.
Postcard to Ernest in France in WW1 from his Mum and Dad. Context not clear but sounds like he had a close shave.
The lady seated is my great-great grandma, Eliza Ann, with my gran Nellie on the right, with her siblings. This would have been during WW1, as the baby Rhoda was born in 1915.
