This is a photograph which has been painted and is a little over 10"x12". Does anyone know of any other such photos? I assume it was taken in Belfast when he was stationed in Tara. It has been x-rayed and there are no signatures etc. The one I have of his daughter is twice as big, and is painted too. I have searched for years... Thanks Lara-May
