Robert Graves, c. 1914, age 19. Reported dead at the Somme, Graves was one of the few of his generation to survive the war. He became a translator, poet, and novelist, and was the author of I, Claudius. Graves died at the age of 90 in 1985, a model Daguerreotype boyfriend if there ever was one.

Belgian soldier during WWI, taken in 1916. I love the dreamy, faraway look in his eyes. Spiffy overcoat, too.
