    This might be worth a shot if you can zoom and clip the uniform and save to your PC.

    His father was Frederick Charles and his mother was Lydia Louisa nee Emerson

    I remembered where the original was! My cousin on the Isle of Wight has it so no chance of getting a better scan at the moment but I will try that google image search, Christine. Thank you for that suggestion.

    Could you explain how I can do that? I'm going to try the google image search that Christine suggested. Are there any other ways that I could try?

    I've looked to see where Tilford is and note that it's very close to Farnham.
    Farnham Swimming Club claim to be one of the oldest swimming clubs in the country and have a history going back to 1893: https://uk.teamunify.com/SubTabGener...stabid_=153498

    It might be worth contacting them to see whether they recognise the crest on Fred's costume...
    Kind regards,

    Current focus of research: The Macleods of Lewis, especially those of the Point district.
    Of particular interest are Macleod families with men by the name of Torquil.

    No, definitely not. He was married aged 19 in 1911 Q4 and had their first child in 1914.

    Ah, another great idea. I can't thank you all enough for all these suggestions - it is so helpful so see how some lateral thought can be applied to a problem. These are all things that I wouldn't have thought of but will now add to my knowledge bank for the future.

The branch that my Frederick is from were around Tilford and Wrecclesham and have an interesting connection with cricket history. I have put an article on my weebly blog about them here https://ourpaststories.weebly.com

    Tomorrow I must find the original photograph.
    No help at all, but you mentioned the Farnham area and I thought the name Caesar was familiar - does Sophia Caesar who was briefly the first wife of James Elkins in Wrecclesham ring any bells?

    I visited the Tilford museum a while ago:

    https://www.familytreeforum.com/show...hlight=tilford - the pictures may not show up as they were on Photobucket but we used several of them in the magazine.

    I’d say he could be even younger. Between maybe 14 to 16. As OC said, his upper body is not well developed and if he is winning medals, you’d expect that in someone who has been swimming for longer.

    I know what you mean, but we mustn't put our modern notions of athletes into this - diet was poorer, training was poorer. I'd put him at 18-22.
