22 Inf Bn trainees at Broadmeadows, 1915

Trainees at the Broadmeadows Army Training Camp, Melbourne in about July 1915
Allen Evans' grandfather, Walter Napper Scott, is second from left in the back row. He would love to know who the others in the photo were, and he thinks he has found a clue to their identity in his grandfather's notebook, which contains the following list of names: Gus Stelling, Bill Sertees, Bill Liston, Frank Tribe, Malcolm, Norm, Harry.

Allen has described his grandfather's experiences with the 22 Infantry Battalion in a post titled At the Broadmeadows Army Training Camp in the First World War, and also the post-war suffering of his pal Bill Liston, A First World War soldier who suffered years later.

 Allen would appreciate anyone who recognises one of the men in this photo getting in touch.
