Description

Recruits from Rockhampton and district, pictured with recruiting banners in Brisbane before entering camp. The recruit at the left of the front row may possibly be identified as 6092 Private Alfred Stratford, a shearer of Mount Morgan, later of the 9th Battalion. The banners read: "We are the recruits for the AIF from Central Queensland will you join us" and may have been used in one of the recruitment marches which happened around Australia.
