    Default What do you guys think ?

    Hey Fellas,
    I need an unbiased set of eyes,to take a look at this photo for me.
    I found this photo of soldiers of the Australian 2/31st Infantry Battalion (my Grandfathers Battalion) taking a break on the Kokoda Track.
    Do you think the Man in the foreground on the right looks like my Grandfather,Frank Ivan Buckingham ?
    Ive included his portrait to compare with.
    .I know its a bit of a long shot,but im convinced its him but some in the family are not quite as sure.
    Cheers for any comments

    I would say it is him.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Although I can't enlarge the photo I too would say that it is him. A little thinner around the face (as to be expected), but looks the same. It helps that he is wearing his helmet at a jaunty angle as he is wearing his slouch hat in the upper photo.

    Hi Mick , I think you could well be right , this fellow certainly has a striking resemblance if it is not him! A touch thinner as is no surprise ,but I think it's the same man. Leon.

    I would definitely say so, the shape of his face looks the same

    I'd bet a carton of beer it's him, Mick. All the visible facial features look the same to me. And he's a fairly distinctive looking chap as well.

    Cheers, Willie.

    I think its him look how he is wearing his helmet and look at the portrait he wears his hat the same way.
