I put the call out for help identifying my  mystery photo on Friday night and Saturday I am very pleased to be able to say that my request for help was answered by renowned  Regimental Books Australia.

Thank you!

They  say the uniform is correct to be militia between 1920-1940 and the badge shape is similar to the 26th Battalion badge (picture isn’t clear enough to be 100% sure), so taking into account that we know George was in the 26th and it was in his possession it looks likely that this is of the 26th Battalion from 1930 onwards to 1936 when he was discharged.

I just wish I knew which one is him! The only picture I have of him is from the Queenslander when he went off to Gallipoli and that isn’t detailed enough to guess.

  1. I assume you've checked whether there is a better photo in the 'All Australian Memorial' or the 'Sydney Mail'? For contact details of those two indexes to WWI soldiers' photos, see page 39 of Specialist Indexes in Australia: a Genealogist's Guide (2006 Supplement).

  2. Hi,

    Try sending it to other bookshops who specialize in military history, you may find out added details? here are but a few,
