Soon to depart troops leave their mark.
Having been notified that they were to be relieved soon these Diggers decided to leave their marks on a former cafe in Tobruk.
Pictured from left to right are;
SX8509 Pvt. Archibald Lawrence Boyes of the 2/48th.
SX5207 Pvt. Torrence Ford Egan of the 2/48th.
VX40954 Pvt. William Neil Morris of the 2/48th. Pvt. Morris is having a joke by painting his name as "Ned Kelly".
All three men survived the war, especially the carnage of Alamein that was so devastating to the 2/48th Infantry Battalion.
