Artillery Unidentified Borden
Photo not positively identified but Frederick looks older than in the training pictures and he wears a stripe, and it is not in France (it says Post Card on the reverse rather than Carte Postâle). All suggesting that it was taken at the end of his army career which is known to have been at Bordon.  There is no positive indication that this picture was taken in Bordon but it is in the style of the other Bordon street scenes.
Percy Hulme on horseFred on horse
Percy Hulme. Frederick Hotten. The photographer was from Bordon. The message indicates that Frederick was sending his brother Harry a picture of himself, but Harry was killed in 1915. The rider isn’t wearing a stripe. All of this suggests that whilst the photograph may have been taken in Bordon it is was not taken post-war as are the remainder at the foot of this page.
