Clement York Varley, Driver, no 535 1st Divisional Train, taken in 1914 before leaving on the first convoy on A19 the Afric, October 18th 1914. Cant see his puggaree or shoulder patch that would indicate his unit, but he is fitted with leather bandolier for ammunition, leggings and carries a riding crop indicating a horseman and not regular infantry. He was 22 and a mere 64kg and 174cm. - Andrew Dunlop
