I got this photo over 20 years ago and I just love it.  The combo of medals and that mustache is awesome!  If anybody can translate the inscription, I would appreciate it.

That's a great picture & quite a rack of medals for this WW1 vet. Sadly I can't make out enough of the words to give a proper translation but the first line says "to my friend Arthur Sulery(?) & family". The rest of the inscription boils down to a thank you note for a warm welcome after a visit, I believe. Not super helpful so maybe someone else can chime in to give a full translation (or correct me if I'm wrong). Nonetheless, great picture!
