Robert Burns has submitted these images related to the service and death of his uncle, Percival Louis James Burns (Percy J Burns). Percy was born in 1913 and served with The Queen's Royal Regiment (West Surrey). He died in service in India in 1938, possibly from an illness caused by ‘dust’ from marching.
The Burns family originated from London and lived in Camberley from before 1915 to the 1960s.
The images show construction working, the motto of the Queen's Royal Regiment (West Surrey) and some relating to the cortege of Percy J Burns.
