Depends where the image file is located. If on a site such as Photobucket then insert the link. If it is on your own computer then use the 'paperclip' Attachment icon and follow the prompts.

according to family he is supposed to be my grandfather fred salt of staffordshire, but on searching military records I only found a record for his brother Harry. So, i'm still searching but quickly losing hope of ever finding such record.
thanks alison

Hi
Is this your man?


First name(s): Fredrick

Last name: SALT

Calculated year of birth: 1866

Parish of birth: St Marys

Town of birth: Stafford

County of birth: Staffordshire

Age at attestation: 22 years 10 months (in one place this has been altered to 32, so birth may be 1856)
Attestation date: 15 May 1888

Attestation corps: Royal Artillery

The National Archives reference: WO97 / 3799 / 51

-----------------------
can you give a census ref where we can see the family to get some idea of ages. I can see two Salt families with a Fred and Harry

As an Airforce Brat, my husband believes that this is a Canadian Army Crest, no doubt, which Rank or Regiment is hard to tell ....maybe badge on chest would give you a idea of rank, etc ...you should be able to go to Canadian Government Archives(www.gc.ca) and find the WWI archives and may be you cud ask someone via that link...All Canadian Census are FREE...you do not have to pay....they are up to date to 1911 and trying for 1915 right now. USA has available 1940....go figure!
cheerio, Rachel



i tried to make it larger for viewing, hope this helps thanks
