Studio portrait of 26626 Gunner (Gnr) Keppel Ernest Turnour, 2nd Field Artillery Brigade. Originally from Kent, England, Gnr Turnour was a farmer from Cohuna, Victoria prior to enlistment, and embarked with the 19th Reinforcements from Melbourne on HMAT Port Sydney on 7 September 1916. Later suffering from asthma, he returned to Australia on 18 October 1917 and was medically discharged. This is one of a series of photographs taken by the Darge Photographic Company which had a concession to take photographs at the Broadmeadows and Seymour army camps during the First World War. In the 1930s, 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
