BRIAN Randall spotted his grandfather in a photo published on February 28 of the Royal West Sussex Regiment in India.

AR Saunders sent in the picture showing officers and NCOs of the regiment stationed in Karachi.

And reader Mr Randall noticed his grandad, Jack Holden, third from the left in the second row.

“He spent many years in India with the regiment along with my grandmother, Annie Holden, and my mother, Nancy, who grew up there,” he said. “My mother had a lot of photographs which she donated to the regimental museum. I still have some memorabilia of my grandfather’s and have many fond memories of him.”
