    There is no such thing as journey's end, but this is a breakthrough. I had all my (meagre) money on Browning, but if Malcom's research fixes the 4FTS connection, then great applause to Malcolm and his wife for their hard work.

    And 11 years later....

    The chap in the helmet is definitely Lancelot "Lance" Harold Browning. You can see a good 1915 photograph of him (he or somebody else ordered a 18x12in print in 1916) that has surfaced in Sutton's Past on Glass project here: https://flic.kr/p/Xk7Gz3. You can read more about the project here: https://pastonglass.wordpress.com/about/.There is another good photo in Norman Franks's Fallen Eagles book.

    Incidentally, his ex-fiancee, Nancy Trollope, was the sister of Captain John "Six in a Day" Lightfoot Trollope MC, who also features in the Past on Glass collection as a young boy (https://flic.kr/p/BPzjS1).

    Both Browning and Trollope will be featuring in an exhibition of the Banstead-related Past on Glass photographs and stories at the library in Sutton, Surrey, this autumn.

    Thank you banstead100 that is terrific and it is wonderful to see the image.
    My money always was on Browning.
