#WordlessWednesday: The British Sailor – 1915

I found this 1915 photograph of a British sailor on a discussion board
in the 1990’s and played with it over the years in different apps.

I’m breaking the rule of #WordlessWednesday by explaining the photo
but I felt it needed context.

World War 1 started Jul 28, 1914 and ended Nov 11, 1918

Is that why the British sailor had this photograph made?

If he fought in the war, I hope he survived and had a good life.

Below is the photo as I found it:
