Huddled together holding a sign asking for their “Mumie”, this photograph is just one of several newly acquired portraits of Australian soldiers that shed light on what life was like during World War One.
The negatives were discovered in the attic of photographer Louis Thuillier’s barn almost a century after they were taken. NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell said of the 800 negatives discovered, 74 hand-printed photographic portraits had been donated to the Australian War Memorial and exhibited to the public next year.
