Carson family page
Walter and Flora Carson, nee Clarke, who married at St Simon's Church, St Helier, in 1920, after Walter returned from serving in the Army during the Great War. The picture is believed to show their first child, Dorothy May, who was born the following year in Aldershot. Walter clearly continued to serve in the Army for some years because the couple's son George William was born in India in 1924.
