Troops of the 7th Division marching through the streets in Melbourne. It was the first opportunity that citizens of Melbourne had to show their appreciation of the 'Silent Seventh' and amazing scenes of enthusiasm greeted the body of troops as they marched in perfect formation through the city streets. It was also the first time that Melbourne had seen a march of troops wearing the African Star.
