Photos of Welsh soldier who inspired World War One poet

Lost photographs of a soldier who inspired two poets during World War One have been uncovered by his former school in Brecon.

David Cuthbert Thomas fought in the trenches alongside celebrated poets Siegfried Sassoon and Robert Graves.

His death in 1916 affected his comrades so much they immortalised him in their work.
