Private Aubrey Woodward's coffin

coffin being carried on the shoulders of six soldiers.

Written on the back of the photo:

"Dear Mrs Woodward
This is your son, Aubrey. The bearers were all his friends, the centre bearer who is nearest you was his closest friend, Pte Clarke."

Like most of the men who died in Palestine either by accident, disease or terrorism, Aubrey Woodward was very young, only 21.
