A relative?

Two relatives.
On the left my uncle [my mother's brother] killed in September 1918 in the assault on the Hindenburg Line. He was 19 years old.

On the right my wife's grandfather , who was in the Royal Australian Navy, and was lost in the North Sea January 1918. His daughter is still alive at aged 95.

Not the same war, but we stopped at a British military cemetery outside Tunis during my trip. It was quite a sight, and one of the members of the tour group shook the caretaker's hand and thanked him for maintaining the site so well. I could e-mail you the picture, if you're interested.

Yes, please.
Another uncle, my father's younger brother, was with the troops that fought in Algeria, Tunisia, Sicily and then the Anzio bridgehead.
He was a medical officer, Lieutenant Colonel in our equivalent of a MASH unit.
His older brother, my Dad, was only a private in the RASC [transport].

Norm, I'd be happy to e-mail you the picture if I knew where to send it. Either let me know where to find an e-mail address on your site, or send me an e-mail (address on my profile), and I'll reply with the picture.
