Another Soldier of the Horse

It has been fascinating to hear from people whose forefathers shared many of the experiences as did my father, as described in  "Soldier of the Horse".
Most recently, I have heard from Rick Wetmore, an American whose grandfather David Lee Wetmore served with "A" Squadron, Royal Canadian Dragoons, at the Battle of Moreuil Wood. Trooper Wetmore was one of the lucky surviviors of that hard-fought engagement, although he was wounded later on.
Rick thinks the accompanying photo was taken on Salisbury Plain during training.
