This photo was taken at Broadmeadows Camp in 1914, and has the label on the back "Headquarters Detail 7th Battalion 1st AIF". The men would roughly speaking be identifiable at the top of the first embarkation list of the 7th Battalion Headquarters personnel, but some changes occurred in those personnel between the photo and the embarkation roll. For instance, the owner of the photo is in the photo, but had been transferred to the Machine Gun section prior to embarkation. I would be grateful for any help with further identifications than the ones I have here

I have created a commemorative online database of the WW1 volunteers of Essendon and Flemington in Victoria, with a blog to support the website: see link below.
I have other websites and blogs which follow other interests.
