Joyce wrote: "... This is a photograph of the Dorrington Family of St Briavels. There were 13 children in the family, one being my Uncle Harold,he married Edna Davies from Milkwall. Now 90 yrs old, he has now gone to Devon to live with his son. All the children were in the forces.
In the picture of four soldiers in WW1 with the sign saying 'Somewhere in France' Harold's father is on the back row right. My grandfather Jack Davies of Milkwall is the front left. The two men spent a lot of their working lives together, regular army and later for the local council".

Left to right- Top Row: Edward, Elizabeth, Frederick, Milson, Edith, Harold, Thomas, Winifred, Isaac.
