Photographer Russell Workman delves into his family archives to share photos and stories of his Uncle Jack’s experience serving in WWI as a Lighthorseman in Palestine.

These unique and never-before-seen images have been scanned and restored from tiny photographs that were developed in Palestine at the time, and give a fascinating insight into the day-to-day lives of the Lighthorse.

Russell will also share an interesting twist of co-incidence regarding Jack’s brother Harold who served in WW2.
