First World War - Share Your UK Stories - Lemnos

One of the UK's leading daily newspapers, The Guardian, has launched a drive for readers to contribute their personal family stories of the First World War.
One of those highlighted is from Lemnos:
A contributor sent in the above image, saying that their great-uncle Tom Squire was on Lemnos after evacuation from Gallipoli. The photo represents the whole of D Squadron, City of London Yeomanry or all that was left of 160 men after action on the peninsula. Sergeant Squire died near Ramallah in November 1917 during the Palestine campaign.
