TEW at Casualty Clearing Station 41, Amiens.Behind the boy is TEW looking stern and dressed like the Kaiser.
Copy of medal index cardI think the card shows TEW's unit number change after being shot in the hand and gassed during Operation Michael, my name, as a part of the Spring Offensive or the Kaiser's Battle. On the photograph he is the one wearing the Picklehaub with his left hand stuffed inside his tunic. I think he went forward after his care with a new team of horses and gun to drive.

Comment from VeraVera's account of the effects of the Spring Offensive
Wilfred OwenWilfred Owen wrote the poem Spring Offensive, with the other stories below it adds up to a chaotic moment in time for my maternal grandfather. He also wrote Miners, 156 dead miners in north Staffs 4 from my family.
TEW at Casualty Clearing Station 41, Amiens 1918.t could be that this photograph was taken as the Kasier's battle faulters after the 'Spring offensive'. TEW was given a new number and went back up the line.
