Here are two photographs from the 1920s that have handwriting on them. One has something written that may or may no be English, the other is a name with something witten after it.

Any ideas.

Good lady and I think the first is German, there is a very feint "Z" Zur (to) someone on the guys thigh.

We think the second is C.S Sutcliffe or something similar. The guy does look familiar for some reason.

First one I thought said something something something "your friends". Maybe "just" something something "your friends". I don't know any German so that wouldn't naturally come to me. I was looking for the English in it. 

Second one I wondered if it could be Cunliffe rather than Sutcliffe. Just a suggestion.

Charles John Cutcliffe Wright Hyne (11 May 1866 – 10 March 1944) was an English[1]novelist who was also known by the pen name Weatherby Chesney. He is perhaps best remembered as the author of The Lost Continent: The Story of Atlantis. He is also remembered for his Captain Kettle stories and for The Recipe for Diamonds.
