F Lavery - Liverpool Regt - Newcastle (DCM)
DescriptionNORTHERNERS WHO HAVE WON THE D.C.M. Company Sergt.-Major F. Lavery, Liverpool Regt., Newcastle, has won the medal for skilfully and gallantly commanding his company when his officer was shot. He set a fine example of bravery and cheerfulness. C.S.M. Lavery, who is an athlete, met a brother at the Front whom he had not seem for 15 years. This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 12th of August 1915. 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.
