The terrible toll of casualties suffered in World War One can be epitomised in this one haunting colourised photograph.<br />
<br />
The fresh-faced men stood on a train station platform made up a platoon of Tommies about to head off to war in August 1914.<br />
<br />
Historian Dan Hill has embarked on a mission to identify every soldier in the photo in a bid to discover what happened to them in the Great War.<br />
<br />
And of the 11 men he has so far been able to put a name to seven of them were killed.<br />
<br />
Mr Hill is now appealing for help and information to identify the remaining nine soldiers in the poignant picture in time for the 100th anniversary of the Armistice in November.
