This RV stop was at a local soccer field just outside of the township. The field was set up with a veggie patch where people could help care for the plants and be rewarded with some produce.

The day was 5th October 1917 and the photo shows sixteen Australians from the 1st Anzac Division infantry troops. They were on their way to the front-line to relieve their comrades. (Frank Hurley was also an official photographer during WW11.) Continue reading “Emu Point”
