This image of the 13th Battlion was shared at Thirroul Scan & Share day. Can you name any of these soldiers?

Australia in Palestine was purchased at the Lifeline book fair. To the surprise of the purchasers, there were images of soldiers from the First World War wedged between the pages. These photos have been shared with Wollongong City Libraries and we are now seeking the names of these unknown soldiers as well as details to put the story into context.

  2. Image of the 13th Battalion -My great great uncle was in the 13th Battalion , 23rd Reinforcement. He was Patrick Hill Condon (Private 6964). Patrick was KIA 24 Sept. 1917 and his name appears on the Menin Gate Memorial (Panel 17). He enlisted 17 Oct. 1916 and left Sydney on the Beltana on 25 Nov. 1916. Unfortunately I do not have a photograph of him or anyone else in the family except his younger brother, my grandfather (Charles Spencer Condon). I would be really interested if anyone identifies any of these brave souls.
