Studio portrait of 1865 A Private (Pte) Thomas Arthur Harding, 46th Battalion. A sleeper cutter from Deptford, Victoria prior to enlistment, Pte Harding embarked from Melbourne on HMAT Euripides on 4 April 1916. Later wounded in action, he was evacuated to England where, on 16 September 1916, aged 19, he succumbed to his wounds and was buried in the Netley Military Cemetery, Hampshire. This is one of a series of photographs taken by the Darge Photographic Company which had a concession to take photographs at the Broadmeadows and Seymour army camps during the First World War. In the 1930s, the Australian War Memorial purchased the original glass negatives from Algernon Darge, along with the photographers' notebooks. The notebooks contain brief details, usually a surname or unit name, for each negative.
