|An unmarked Cabinet Photograph depicting the grave of No. 2248 Band Sergeant Albert John Warren of the 1st Battalion,
Gloster Regiment. Inset within the larger photo of Sergeant Warren grave is a smaller image of Sergeant Warren himself.
He wears the ribbon for the Queen's South Africa Medal. Warren was entitled to the clasps "Orange Free State" and
"Defense of Ladysmith". The inscription on his monument appears to indicate that Warren served in both the 1st and 2nd
battalions of the regiment.
The photograph was taken at a cemetery in Colombo, Ceylon sometime after Warren's death there on 26 December, 1902.
Warren was born in Birmingham and attested with the Glosters on 11 January, 1888. Based on his stated age on the grave
monument he must have been born about 1874.
Below is an enlarged detail of Sergeant Warren which reveals the mouth piece of his clarinet.
