The versos of all these photographs have descriptions of the events depicted. There are three photographs of Matt Wilkinson whose trade in the army was that of a blacksmith. There is also a postcard photograph of the Ravens Hotel in Schleswig, Germany where he was billeted. Also in the album are a group of news clippings about Flying Officer Alexander Jamieson Muir (1920-1944) who served in the 626 Squadron.
