DescriptionNEWCASTLE SERGEANT WINS THE D.C.M. Sergt. Wm. Brown, 110th Battery, R.F.A., nephew of Mr. and Mrs. M. Jameson, 8 Walter Terrace, Newcastle, has been awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal. Sergt. Brown, who is a native of Newcastle, has earned rapid promotion since joining the Army, a few years ago. A few weeks ago he married Miss M.K. Florish, of Cork, and before leaving France for England, he had the unique experience of being presented on the battlefield, amid flying shells, with a wedding present from the officers of the battery. This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 19th of June 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 please comment below.
