The cover photograph on the above video as advertised in"Spur" (various editions) features my grandfather RUPERT FRANKLIN GORE GALLAWAY ( JACK FOR SHORT)in the left foregrround(smoking a pipe),at the rear of the person in the forefropnt right is his brother WILLIAM GALLAWAY, also smoking a pipe). Both served, I understand, with the 2nd Light Horse, and enlisted in Queensland. This photograph featured on the front of a Time Life publication on the Australian Army and was subsequently tyraced through the War Memorial in Canberra. I understand it was taken in February 1918 as the Australian Desert Corp advanced towards Damascus.

Anyone with further details of the people in the photograph can contact me on thjis e-mail addres or by telephoning 0414 623 839.
