    The card on the left shows five soldiers who survived WW I: the brothers Percy, Douglas, and Albert GUY, and two others, who were presumably friends, Arthur John (Jacko) BROWN, and Arthur Harry COOK. Four of the five appear on the Arreton Parish Roll of Honour and the GUY brothers appear on the Arreton Methodist Church Roll of Honour. Some of the cards are addressed to Hilda GUY, one of their sisters. More biographical information on the GUY family can be found at Guy brothers biography.
