"I was sent this by my family – this is my great uncle Victor Ferguson," wrote the mother-to-be alongside the incredible black and white image.

Text accompanying Lt Victor's portrait read: "In memory of Lt Victor John (1898-1918) 2nd Life Guards, eldest son of Brig Gen Algernon and the Hon Mrs Ferguson of Polebrooke, Northamptonshire. Killed in action on 21st August 1918, at Amiens, France. Not forgotten by the Ferguson family."
