    Hello
    does anyone recognize this place? I guess it could be in Normandy. IMG_20181104_0002.jpg

    Any clues on the back ?
    Why do you think it is Normandy ?
    Going by openneck battledress I would have said post-war somewhere on the north German coast as it's a fisherman.

    Their is an inscription behind the soldier and some of it is visible. Perhaps a better scan of the text will reveal something. The last line appears end with 1901.

    The wavy edged photographic paper would suggest Germany.

    Well done Tony, I thought we were a little slow with this one. I tried all different Google entries, but not Hook of Holland.

    Well done Tony. I tried for lifeboat memorials but didn't see the Holland one.
    (I bet Owen is miffed; he's usually much quicker off the mark, ha ha:-P)

    Wow, I'm impressed! I thought he took the photo on R and R in Normandy. Didn’t think about the uniform so much. But Holland makes sense, he was posted there in 1946. Thank you very much for your help!
