Some Latchmore Postcards

I have already posted details of some CDV produced by Thomas Benwell Latchmore, of Hitchin,  and have now acquired a postcard showing three soldiers - and added details to the same page. It would seem was produced before 1908, when Thomas died. I was hoping it might be able to identify them by enlarging detail - and it may be that the buttons shows a lion and unicorn holding a shield surmounted by a crown - but perhaps my imagination has run riot!

In addition the following card was produced by T. B. Latchmore & Son, and may have been produced after Thomas died. I have posted the image on the page related to the Quakers of Hitchin.

  1. My name is Matthew Latchmore and I live in Ontario Canada. I was wondering if you know of any hereditary link by chance?

  2. If you had read the instructions about asking questions you would know that this is a specialist site for people who already know that they have connections with the county of Hertfordshire.
