Most unusual item

A lock of hair that belonged to belonged to Henry Edmund Burleigh Leach (1870-1936), who was a decorated military officer between 1887 and 1920 and a prominent figure in Pembrokeshire. This lock of hair is dated 10th September 1872, so was taken at some point between the two photographs.
