Members of the 22nd Battalion, mostly C Company men who had just come out of the Ville-sur-Ancre attack enjoying relaxation playing 'two up', a popular gambling game amongst the Australian troops. The photograph was taken at the moment two pennies were tossed in the air, and the players were watching the 'spin'. Identified: 917 Private (Pte) Sidney Glen Wood (1); 989 Corporal Fenton Horan DCM & Bar (2); 5402 Pte William Pontin (4); 1719 Sergeant Stanley Crompton Gilchrist MM (11); Pte Chislett (19).
