“Melbourne - Waving farewell to AIF Advance Party.” (Original official Department of Information caption).
Women and children on the wharf wave farewell to friends and family on the departing troop transport ship Strathallan carrying the Advance Party of the 6th Division AIF to service overseas.
Curator's Note: Many families have felt an affinity with this image and over time multiple conflicting identifications have been suggested for these women and children. They will remain unidentified in this caption as the image is a rear view and there is no compelling supportive evidence to confirm identifications.
