This postcard is thought to be 1912

Next The two photos above and the four photos below supplied by Aidan Harrison, and scanned by Andrew Snowdon.

Andrew says:
There's a particularly fine moustache in the formal portrait!
I have endeavoured to translate the inscription on the gravestone, and arrived at:
Ici repose le sous-officier Anglais
E. W. Field
Mort pour la Patrie
A bord du transport MERCIAN
Accueilli le 20 Xbre 1915

Here lies the English Sergeant
E. W. Field
Died for his country
On board the transport (ship) MERCIAN
?Laid to rest 20 ?December 1915
'Accueilli' actually means 'welcomed', and  'Xbre'  I have guessed as an abbreviation.
