Photograph Album from Lutonian

This album has been donated to the WW1 Project by a Lutonian of many years standing, and shows members of her family, including her mother, father (Ernest Charles Mills, seen above) and uncles; who lived through the Great War years.

There are WW1 postcards, and some amusing photographs of soldiers in costume within the album, clearly having fun despite the horrors of war.

The small sketch inside this album, showing men cooking, is by Ernest Mills and is contemporary with his time in the trenches. The album also contains photographs from WW2.
