East coast mystery as forces photo found on station platform

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Press release

    East Coast rail staff are hoping to track down the owner of a forces photo found this week on a station platform.

    The photo, which shows a group of 14 men in uniform, was found during a daily clean-up of the platform at Darlington railway station.

    Now staff at the station are hoping the person who lost the military snap will come forward so they can reunite them with it.

    East Coast spokesman John Gelson said: “The photo is probably of great personal value to its owner. When our station team found it on the platform at Darlington we thought it would have been missed by its owner.

    “It’s a photograph which captures a lighter moment, and it looks like it’s been well cared for. We’d like to reunite it with its owner.”

    Anyone who recognises the photo and has travelled to or from Darlington station this week can drop in to Darlington station to reclaim it.
