A portrait of Major Cuthbert Fetherstonhaugh DSO (1879-1961) of Coonamble NSW who was a veteran of the Boer War. During the charge of Beersheba he shot his wounded horse and charged on foot into the Turkish trenches where he was wounded in both legs. When Lambert went to Belah in March 1918, he approached Major Fetherstonhaugh and asked permission to take some pencil notes. While there he watched the divisional sports, which are probably the subject on the verso of this sheet.
