Family history - back to the Front
y grandfather in his World War One uniform in 1918. (This isn't the grandfather who took all the photos, and married one of the ladies in the 'Three sisters' photo - this is my father's father, Francis Samuel Wilmut - always known as Sam.) As he was a maths teacher, he was placed in the Trigonometry Section, plotting the position of enemy guns from acoustic bearings taken from observer positions. He looks a bit wary here: the Army haircut doesn't help. In later life he got rid of the moustache, fortunately.
