Portrait of F Ansell. This is probably 10314 Trooper Frank Atkinson Ansell, 2nd Field Artillery Brigade (2 FAB), later 3 FAB who was killed in action on 8 August 1918. This is one of a series of photographs taken by the Darge Photographic Company which had the concession to take photographs at the Broadmeadows and Seymour army camps during the First World War. In the 1930's, the Australian War Memorial purchased the original glass negatives from Algernon Darge, along with the photographers' notebooks. The notebooks contain brief details, usually a surname or unit name, for each negative. The names are transcribed as they appear in the notebooks.
