Harry Clarke, taken by a professional photographer in Hull, about 1917-18. He had been born on 8th October 1914. He was given
the middle name Louvain, which came from the Belgian town of that name. In August 1914 the Germans were already in Louvain, and had been attacked by the Belgian army. However, there was
much confusion, and in an act of revenge the Germans ‘sacked’ the town on August 25th, and shot many of the residents, regardless of age or gender.
