    Default WW1 Group 32090 Cameron

    I am absolutely stoked to win this group. I had a go at winning it earlier this month but lost out, I was happy to see it relisted due to a non payer.

    32090 Ewen Alexander Cameron enlisted 18 September 1916, a National bank clerk from Sydney with the 13th reinforcements of the 2 Divisonal Ammunition Column.

    He was sent back to Australia wounded with gas poisoning in 1918 and re enlisted a second time 26 Sep 1918. He spent most of his time with the 113th Howitzer Battery in Belgium.

    I dont have the collection yet , but here is the sellers page of photos of the item

    This one could be from the troopship RMS Osterley when Cameron left Australia on 10 Feb 1917 ? I will try and blow it up when I get it to see if I can find anything to confirm it. Troops were banned from having cameras overseas, due to security reasons and that the army didnt want to put off potential recruits by having them see any scenes of horror.

    I can confirm my guess was correct on this one. It was written on the back
