Studio portrait of 5682 Private (Pte) Cornelius Hanrahan, 14th Battalion. A labourer from Bacchus Marsh, Vic prior to enlistment, Pte Hanrahan embarked with the 18th Reinforcements from Melbourne on HMAT Port Lincoln on 4 May 1916. Whilst serving in France, he was wounded in action and evacuated to England. Following his recovery he rejoined his unit and returned to Australia on 1 August 1919. See also DA15165. This is one of a series of photographs taken by the Darge Photographic Company which had the 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.
