  • Arthur Edwin Ashford (11th Armoured Division)

    My name is Andrea. I was wondering if anyone would be able to advise me on where I can start. I have a few photographs of his, the biggest clue I have is a group photograph with him in the middle and on the back it states 11th Armoured “The Black Bull” R.A.S.C. A couple of his photos also have the number “83” on.  296 total views
