An unframed Royal Canadian Regiment photograph copy measuring approximately 9 by 6.5 inches. The photograph is an oddity in that despite the very aged backing, the tears visible in the photo belong to the original photo. To the reverse the gentleman sitting is identified as “RCR Walter Hatfield in 1899 or 1901”. Additionally written, “G Company New Brunswick. Hatfield From 62 St Johns Fusiliers”. I have yet to discover any remaining original or other copies.
