Old Film:: Elvie, Len & Betty (1950s)

I’m really not sure about the type of photograph (it seems to be low quality and grainy) but the subjects are my Auntie Elvie, my grandfather William Lionel (Len) Clark and Auntie Betty. It must have been made in the late 1940s-1950s by my grandmother, Elvie Ruth Bonner. My aunties were great great great great granddaughters of the First Fleet convict Richard Morgan (1748-1837) and great great granddaughters of Brereton Ross Porter Pemberton Rolla Watson (1804-1877) of the family line to Rockingham Castle, Jutland. My grandfather survived years of trench warfare in France in World War 1 and ended his service after armistice a Sergeant in 14th Battalion.
