Summary

Field Marshal (Earl) Haig (1861-1928) and other military and civilian officials, including a French general, standing on a station platform. They appear about to greet someone as the two main civilians have their hats off. Sir Winston Churchill (1874-1965) stands to the right...The photograph has no original caption. It is not dated but it is perhaps most likely that it was taken in the period between 1918 and 1921 when Churchill was Secretary of State for War...digital.nls.uk/74549736 ( http://digital.nls.uk/74549736 )
