The gentleman on the right is Samuel Black and we think that the gentleman seated is his brother, Robert Black. Robert Black was wounded at the battle of Hooge, and died in 1916 from the effects of Gas Poisoning. His name is not commemorated by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and he is not listed as War Dead, even though he was given a Military Funeral in Shankill graveyard. Lurgan Ancestry in conjunction with Robert's family are trying to rectify this, so that Robert can take his rightful place on their Roll of Honour. Our thanks to Adele Cosgrove for this photo.
