Fred Zimber Pictures

These are pictures relating to my Great-Granduncle Fred Zimber who died in World War 1 at the Second Battle of Ypres.

The first is a group of Volunteers from Fiji who enlisted together and became the Fiji Platoon of the Kings Royal Rifle Corps. Fred is second from the right in the third row from the front (ie the first standing row).
The second is a postcard of the ship, the RMS Makura, they sailed on signed by all the members of the platoon. Fred signed as "F.R. Cairns" (he enlisted under an assumed name) at the top of the right hand column above the picture.

The final photo is a close up of Fred taken from the first photo hence the poor resolution.
