A sentimental soldier

Trooper George Ross of the 4th Light Horse Regiment sent home this sentimental photo of himself with his sister Kate Ross inset at the top.  Kate went on to marry Pte James Simonsen, who served with  the 4th Field Ambulance in Gallipoli and France. George Ross served entirely in the Middle East, and probably took part in the famous Charge of the Light Horse at Beersheba in 1917.  Photo courtesy of Jim Rowley.
