A Fletcher family photo: memories of World War One

A lovely photo received from Camborne Guides, who have been interviewing Betty Fletcher of Praze WI.
Mrs Fletcher's grandfather-in-law Ernie is in the centre of this photo. He signed up early in World War One and played in the three rugby matches organised at the Front after Camborne Rugby Club sent out a ball.
In the photo, he is flanked by his grandson Gerald (left) and son Leslie (right).
The Guides' interview with Betty Fletcher is part of our Heart of Conflict project, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project exhibition opens at the Cornish Studies LIbrary, Redruth, next Tuesday.
