Unknown Dorling, assumed to be a gamekeeper in NW Suffolk

This photo is called "Dorling taking aim" and is assumed to one of the Dorlings who was a gamekeeper. The Brandon and Mildenhall area of Suffolk had Dorling gamekeepers, some of whom are known to have worked at Elveden on the estate of the Earl of Iveagh. The soldier standing next to Dorling suggests a date of either WW1 or WW2. Suggestions for date most welcome, and if anyone recognises who the Dorling is, (or anyone else in the photo) please let me know. Posted by Picasa

I recently joined the facebook group about this website and contacted my father (eamonn dorling) to ask him a little about his father (jack dorling) and where we was from. My granddad was from the norfolk/suffolk area and he also mentioned that my great grandfather looked after gardens of some sort. I don't know if this is a coincidence but I can find out some more information if that would be of help. I'll get a blogger account but for now my e-mail is
