Reproduction of large framed original photograph of William Sanders VC 2012.81.1, copied 06/2021. The original photograph was taken between his first and second actions sometime between June 12-27 1917, at the Milford Avon Naval Base in Wales, where Sanders was based at the time. Sanders is pictured with a cane and is hiding his left hand under his right. This is due to an injury he suffered on HMS Prize on 12 June, 1917 during an engagement with a German U-Boat.
