    This is my first post, so go easy lol!

    My grandfather was stationed at 322 MU Cawnpore and he was an avid photographer. I want to learn more about his time there. He died when I was little so I did not get to ask him questions. I have his photography collection along with the negatives. I would love to share the photos I have and the negatives as i restore them with others who may have had family at Cawnpore. Is this allowed?

    Thank you


    PS My granddad was Leslie Potter

    Photographs are always welcome :) The truck that he's leaning on is a CMP (Canadian pattern) Chevrolet.
