    Richard Wilcocks: . Photo is from a collection sent to Emma Smith (nee Pearson) my grandmother, who wrote to the family in Canada. She had known Alfred Rippingale (four years older than her) as a neighbour in England and as the brother of her cousin Arthur's wife Caroline.
    My note: Although this pic was under Alfred, I think the 2 soldiers are Stanley & Benjamin
