DescriptionFIVE COUNDON BROTHERS SERVING THEIR COUNTRY. Mr. and Mrs. James Capp, of Coundon, have five sons serving their country, two being in the Navy and three in the Army. The photos are of Robert, 1st class gunner and leading seaman, who has been in the Navy 21 years; Leonard, a stoker in the Navy; Elijah, of the 3rd Durhams; Joseph, of the 6th Durhams; and Prince, who has just joined Kitchener's Army. This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 8th of October 1914. During the Great War the Illustrated Chronicle published photographs of soldiers and sailors from Newcastle and the North East of England, which had been in the news. The photographs were sent in by relatives and give us a glimpse into the past. The physical collection held by Newcastle Libraries comprises bound volumes of the newspaper from 1910 to 1925. We are keen to find out more about the people in the photographs. If you recognise anyone in the images and have any stories and information to add please comment below.
