William George Elliott in Southsea Pier - 1920
from An octogenarian's personal life story, page 36:
[William George Elliott transferred to the ranks from the Band and Drums, and was eventually promoted to Corporal. He patrolled the Atlantic during World War I and was transferred to office work in Gosport following a period in the Royal Naval Hospital due to a breakdown]
Being in the Band as a boy, I loved music and consequently on Sundays I spent most of my time on Southsea Pier, where invariably there was a Band giving a performance.
