    No way I can tell for sure, but if I had to guess I would say it's him.

    Gday Mick, I was always under the impression that this photo was the 2/27th battalion taken just after the fighting on brigade hill. This photo is in Peter Brune's book " those ragged bloody heros" with the caption - exhausted survivors of the 2/27th battalion.

    regards Paul

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.



    I'm Spartacus, not really i'm Paul!...

    Just went on the Australian war memorial sight this is photo 027017, with the caption

    PAPUA, NEW GUINEA. 1942-10. MEMBERS OF THE 2/27TH AUSTRALIAN INFANTRY BATTALION AS THEY REACHED THE OUTPOST AT ITIKI, AFTER BEING OUT OF TOUCH WITH OTHER TROOPS FOR 13 DAYS. THEY HAD HAD VERY LITTLE FOOD AND WERE IN BAD SHAPE WHEN THEY CAME IN.

    Although he does look a bit like your Grandfather. I find it very hard to pick faces out of these old black and white photos. I have several photos of my Grandfather are hard to distinguish

    That's still possible, you never know, after all both units were in the area...... it could be a mix.....too bad the photographer didn't ask for names
