The site’s background photo doesn’t actually include any of our Scouts, but is a group of Royal Engineers in camp, either in Newark or Lancashire, sometime between June 1916 and September 1917.
The man on the far right of the back row is my Great Grandfather, William Edgar Wood, who was also killed in WW1.
