"This is a photo of my great uncle George Saysum also known as "Chum" and his sister Elizabeth Saysum also known as "Cissie" in 1918. Both were born in Lydney at Allastone Mesne. The injury George has to the eye was was sustained in the great war (1914-1918) and which would eventually kill him a few months after this photo was taken aged 22. He was a military policeman and is commemorated on the Lydney war memorial and inside the church. He is buried in Lydney churchyard with a white military headstone. The Saysum name has a variation in the spelling and can also be spelt Saysom".
