A Photograph of Three 16th DLI NCOs at Blida, North Africa, 1943

This isn't exactly a new photograph, as it's been on the site as a small illustration in the Concise History pages for a while. However, I've now made up a page for an enlarged version of it, here:

The NCOs featured are: Colour Sergeant John Crosby, who was killed in action in September 1944, Cook Sergeant 'Sibble' Battle and CSM W 'Jimmy' James. I've also linked the photo to the small version illustrating Jimmy James's excellent poem about the Salerno Landings, which is already on this page:
