11Bn Descendants Kings Park 10 Jan 2015
After breakfast this morning the whole Battalion descendants was gathered up to the Kings Park Flame and Memorial and we had a photo took, or at least several of them.
(Capt. Barnes - 10 Jan 2015?)
We can imagine that had he been here, Captain Barnes would have made his diary entry for 10 Jan 2015 along the lines above. We can also be pretty sure he would have enjoyed seeing so many of the original 11th Battalion descendants gathered for a commemorative service and to "have a photo took, or several of them".
Well some of Captain Barnes family attended the Centenary event and "had their photo took", along with many other families of his fellow 11th Battalion soldiers.
After collating, the individual photos are now available, along with the opportunity to identify the descendants in the various images below.

Duncan Warren AM RFD.
