A large group of Australian military officers, described as the instructional staff of the Federal City Forces; most names not known.

Lorenzo 8th from right; Colonel Dean 9th from right; Colonel F.J.D. Darvall 10th from right; and T. Hancock 11th from right. The man fifth from right also appears in PRG 280/1/42/114 and the man 6th from right also appears in PRG 280/1/39/182. A researcher has suggested that the small group that appears in PRG 280/1/42/114 and this photo appear to have been taken at the same time at the Jubilee (ie Exhibition) Oval during the later years of WWI. It is possible that the small group is the local staff and the large includes staff from HQ at Keswick.
