What they Carried

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

In addition to all the military elements that the Australian soldier had with him, there were some other effects.

His toothbrush marked – Flexadent France

His wallet – some French Francs clearly 1916 dated

His spoon (with razor on the top)

Finds like these added still more to the overall picture of the man.
