Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
As the 100th anniversary of the Armistice is looming I am asking for help to contact any living relatives of former Daily Mirror photographers who served in WW1 or worked for the paper in the UK during the conflict.
I am particular interested in Bernard, Thomas and Horace Grant who had all covered conflicts around the world before the outbreak of the Great War.
Other photographers of interest are David McLellan, Ivor Castle, Ernest Brooks and William Rider Rider official photographer with the Canadians. William after the war joined the Mirror and became our chief picture editor during WWII
These men served the Paper and their Country by recording the horrors of war only armed with their camera's. I would like to encourage the paper to recognise the service these men gave by telling their stories in their words.
