According to a researcher, the man standing left rear is Doctor Harry Nott, RMO (who was with the 10th Battalion AIF), with W. R. Cavenagh-Mainwaring to his left (assigned to the 3rd Light Horse). Both units were at the Morphettville Camp in 1914. The man seated in the centre is Frederick Goldsmith, surgeon (also appears in PRG 280/1/26/104).
