Thank you for posting this photograph. "Billy" was a much loved "Brother" of the Cullum family that he and his father lived with in South London. At the start of the war in 1939 aged 16 years he was described in the Census as Milkman's Round boy. All of the Brothers signed up at the same time, but "Billy" was always ridiculed for wearing no badges on his uniform- always claiming that he had not yet been assigned a regiment. He is the central figure in the photograph which was date stamped on the reverse 3rd April 1944. The family were informed of his death, but never knew much of where or how he died. Thank you so much for your web-site which has finally revealed so much of what we have been searching for for almost 80 years.https://drive.google.com/file/d/1pcY0CnloPR0NC3nOVHK6ACUtFLc7nq5a/view?usp=sharing
