With the Australians in France 1916 (c.1917)

  1. "West Australians marching to the trenches" Theo's still photo is taken from this film at 32 seconds after the start. He is on the extreme right of the screen 4th last man.(extract from email)

    In this footage as mention above cut from an email sent to me from a relative my Great Uncle can be seen.(as mentioned) as far as i know my great uncle was killed a few days after this with no known grave and his mother/people recognised his face when this clip was played at the movie's.
    (When this film was shown in Kal in 1917 people recognised Theo and the film was stopped and two frames cut from the film and given to Grandma who had this last memento photo printed.)(extract from email)
