My Pa....

This photo of my grandfather needed to be kept as it is disintergrating, so after a scan, I have it mounted with little tags, so if anyone else in the family does want it, it will be easily removed.
Such a wonderful photo taken in approx 1899 in Hawera in NZ, where he was living.  He was Captain in the local Fire Brigade, & here he is pictured with his uniform & medals. Some years ago, my mum gave me his medal on a gold chain that I wear with pride.

I have worked on this LO following inspiration from the LSBS March CC, that runs til 12midnight tonight..

Take care xxxx
