  4. www.awm.gov.au/collection/P04541.001/?image=1 Members of the Graves Registration Detachment, Australian section, of the Imperial War Graves unit loading bodies from a mass grave to be put in single graves. The bodies are wrapped in groundsheets with ID tags after exhumation and prior to reburial in permanent war cemeteries. Identified is 3162 Private Herbert James (Bert) Kingston (standing on the waggon). Formerly a member of the 47th Battalion, he enlisted from Bundaberg, Qld and sailed with the 8th Reinforcements.
  5. I have this 1914 EK1 screwback which I am unsure of the manufacturer (it has an illegible marking near the screw and some markings around the edge of the inside of the disc which I cannot make out). Any information would be appreciated.

  19. cazack, Sorry my previous post is not much help. I believe these are the Canadian recipients: - http://www.canadiangreatwarproject.com/Regimental/mc-mm.asp To find the other recipients would be an interesting challenge to work through the London Gazette, regimental records, British army medal index cards and various other possible sources.
