Military Monday - Hershel Stanley Hall - The Gallant 30

The Gallant 30 - First Bahamas Contingent to Join British West Indies Regiment During WWI

The following is a copy of a picture taken of the first Bahamas contingent that joined the British West Indies Regiment during World War I in 1915.  This picture was actually taken right before they sailed for England from Nassau on 9 Sep 1915.  My husband's maternal grandfather, Hershel Stanley Hall, is pictured on the far left.  He was just seventeen years old when he left for the war.  His name was spelled on the original roster as "Heisal S. Hall."  He returned home on 19 Jun 1919.  Original source of this picture is unknown, the copy being in my mother-in-law's family possession for many years.
