DescriptionNEWCASTLE FUSILIER WOUNDED AT THE FRONT Pte. David Syron, 1st Northumberland Fusiliers, has been wounded at the Front, and, unlike many of our wounded soldiers who have been sent to home hosptials, he has been kept in France, in hospital there. His home is in Newcastle, where he lived at 6, Hindhaugh Street. On the outbreak of the war, he was soon hard at work doing "his little bit" for Britain. This photograph was published in the Illustrated Chronicle on the 13th of March 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.
