Default An Australian Light Horseman collecting anemones near Belah in Palestine

Just a nice photo of an interesting person.

4272068.jpg

Original Australian War Records Section caption: "An Australian Light Horseman collecting anemones near Belah in Palestine". The soldier was identified in 2007 as being 2601 Trooper George "Pop" Redding, 8th Light Horse Regiment. Redding enlisted from Benalla, Victoria, on 28 August 1915 stating his age to be 44. He was in fact 57 making him nearly 61 at the time of this photograph and one of the oldest enlisted men in the AIF.
This is an original Paget Plate colour image, a process with an inherent black and white glass negative.
