Nephew and uncle. My uncle David (left) and Great Uncle Jim (right), both served in the Royal Navy during WWII. Born only months apart, they were more like brothers. This photo was taken while the ships that both served on were in Brisbane, Australia. The story goes that they used the novelty of their relationship to persuade their respective commanders to grant them leave to have this photo taken. Both also survived war to marry and raise families. My uncle David spent many years in Zimbabwe and now lives in England.

This post was written for Wordless Wednesday, a Geneabloggers prompt.
