George Hancock

This is George Thomas Hancock (1895-1945) who lived on Pitchers Hill. The picture was taken about 1916 and sent to his younger brother Henry Stephen Hancock who was in the Army. It shows plums packed into baskets.

On the back is written 'Dear Harry, I am sending you one of my photos. I don't know what you will think of it. I was working along Evesham road when it was taken, plum picking. Hoping you are in the best of health as it leaves all of us at present, with best love from all, George.' Sadly, the picture was returned to the family with Harry's possessions after he was killed.

The photograph was kindly lent by Peggy Hancock.
