Looking for soldiers that served prior to WW1? Find My Past is the best resource for finding information about Victorian-era Soldiers.
By far the best resource for WW1 research. WW1 Service Records, pension papers, medal index cards and casualty information.
Search through millions of archived British Newspaper Articles to find any references to your ancestors.

The man in this photo postcard is somewhat of a mystery. The card is titled ‘Private Lance Ingham’ ; yet, I can find no reference to this man having served with the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment.

    This man looks exactly like my grandfather Jack. What year was this? Jack died in 1969 and this man must be a relative. they could be the same person, the resemblance is so strong.

    • Hi James, I don’t know the year sorry. It would make sense to be your Jack as there wasn’t anyone named Lance Ingham in the LNL as far as I know. Regards, Paul

      • James Ingham says:

        I found a record for a Lance Corporal S. Ingham who died at Galipoli and was in the Lancashire Fusiliers 1st/6th Bn. Perhaps Lance was not this man’s name after all?
        ‘Jack’ was actually C.W.Ingham. The resemblance is striking though.

    I also believe there is another photo in the public domain of Lance Corporal S.Ingham listed as, “Unknown Soldiers, Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, Preston. It is on the website British Army Ancestors – A Photographic Archive, on their homepage! https://britisharmyancestors.co.uk/

    I was studying the “Unknown” portrait for a likeness of somebody else so when I chanced upon your photo and discussion above, I believed, without a doubt, it was the same person.

    Paul, if you are in agreement, could you please do all that is necessary to put the two together. This is not my field of expertise at all. Kind regards, Jenny
