pre-war. The woman on the left may be Harriet Martin, Arthur's grandmother (Ellen's mother). If so this picture cannot be later than 1911 when Harriet died.

Arthur, on leave, c.1917. Taken by his father Charles, in Charles's garden, Ditchling Rise, Brighton.  

Arthur (in the bucket) larking about with his half-brother Teddie and brother Frank in the early 1920's. The man at left in unknown. Of the man at right Pat Donovan has written 'Uncle Harry, Teddy Donovan's uncle' on the back. It doesn't look much like Harry Donovan though. Harry was living in America and died in 1930. It could be Harry Greenfield, Arthur's uncle, who could loosely be described as Teddie's uncle.
