- A reverse-painted glass portrait depicting 664 Private (Pte) Frederick Clarke. Pte Clarke embarked from Sydney on 28 November 1914. He served at the 2nd Australian General Hospital at Mena and then with the 11th Field Ambulance in France. Pte Clarke was wounded in action on 19 October 1917, and returned to Australia on 1 June 1918. Pte Clarke's photographic portrait is framed beneath an ornamental, reverse-painted sheet of glass depicting waratah, Sydney flannel flowers, and a cartouche featuring the Australian flag and the Union Jack and the patriotic slogan 'He heard the call'. The portrait was most likely produced by a studio in Sydney; the Memorial holds another, very similar example, of 6210 Pte Harold Murray of Redfern (P03760.001).
