The Dungarees recruitment march, led by an army band, passing through Ipswich en route to Brisbane. The Dungarees march commenced in Warwick, Queensland on 16 November 1915 and travelled via Toowoomba to Brisbane. According to an article published in the Warwick Examiner and Times on Monday 29 November 1915, "The column walked into Ipswich 78 strong, and it is believed they will leave this morning with an addition of 30". Note a group of men carry a large banner depicting the soldier from the “Call from the Dardanelles” recruitment poster, behind which another declares "We are from Stanthorpe, come and join us".
