Mrs M. Ingram
To Dear Mother from Bob with best wishes. I hope you will like my beautiful costume. It is not a very costly robe. Send in your order without delay we are nearly sold out.
May 18, 1918
PHOTO TAKEN AT BRIGTON ENGLAND
Left to Right: Pte Moore, Lance Corporal Cook, Pte Ingram, Private Ferguson in foreground watching the bathers. Excuse my grin, Fergy was tickling my leg as you can see by photo.
I reckon I can pass the M.Ps. in that disguise. All the “Beetlecrushers” send their kindest regards to you all in Australia.
Brighton is about 50 miles from Victoria Station London and is one of England’s famous seaside resorts.

[Bob Ingram was my grandmother’s oldest brother. Her father died when she was young, so he was like a father to her. After this picture was taken he was gassed on the western front. He was 19. He survived the gassing but died from his injuries a few years later. Lest we forget. TDL]
