The lucky ones: British soldiers are pictured enjoying a respite from the killing fields of Ypres. Now, historians have found they ALL survived. So what happened when they went home?

Tank commanders are in their camp at La Lovie, near the Belgian town of Poperinge
Identities revealed thanks to letter in The Tank journal in 1950s, in which veteran recognised his comrades
Second Lt Frederick King returned to what is now Southern Rhodesia and resumed his police career
Major Richard Cooper moved to US, became big-game hunter and close friend of Ernest Hemingway
