Photographs of Commonwealth troops have found their way into family albums through wartime friendships.
This soldier is wearing the Australian infantry tunic which has the distinctive "poachers" pockets and is self belted.
| The cloth shoulder battalion patch would tell us his Unit if we could see the colours. It is a disc which signifies 4th Division and divided horizontally, which usually signifies Infantry.
You may occasionaly see a brass letter 'A' on the battalion patch which inicates that the man had served with the ANZACS at Gallipoli. The Australian Light Horse wore a hat with emu plumes.
