This is the only photo that I know of Ernest Victor Pearson and it has his wife Annie Estella (nee Whitting) and his children Thelma and Ronald. Annie died 1919 so the two children were orphaned and lived with her sister also married to a Pearson but different family. The Mrs M Francis mentioned was Ernest's sister Mary Maud (nee Pearson). Also mentioned was another Pearson , John William (brother) who ended up in a prison camp and finally repatriated with war wounds. The remains of Ernest were not found. I do have a photo of John William Pearson on his wedding day but not in uniform. These photos are family photos.
