We have, what we thought was the original of this photo, in the album of William Alfred Clothier, a fellow member of NZ Field ambulance Corp. I am with my husband Brent Clothier, the Grandson of WE Clothier, having just returned from the final resting place of William Innes and J H Reeves. It is 30 October 2018. We have today, taken photos of the grave yard at Nieppe.We have spent many years trying to track down Billy Innes as he appears, laughing and happy in early photos in the same album in Egypt We would love to link in with more information about this young man
