Description

Group portrait of prisoners of war, left to right; an unidentified indigenous soldier; 467 Private (Pte) Harry Avery, 45th Battalion, and unidentified British soldier. Pte Avery enlisted on the 9 September 1914. Avery was captured while serving with the 45th Battalion in France and later died of wounds at a German field hospital on 25 May 1918. The indigenous soldier was originally believed to be 6020 Pte Douglas Grant, 13th Battalion, however recent research and comparisons with known portraits of Grant indicate that this identification was incorrect.
