Hi Alastair - this means it is from the Alexander Turnbull Library collection. The DA number is their reference. You can search for it on their Timeframes website.

A photo from the Crete campaign is quoted as ATL: DA-07513 What does this mean and who holds the original?

Thanks, Mark - not sure how this one slipped through! Have corrected the caption and changed the title. Jamie Mackay

The terrain and uniforms suggest that the photo was taken in North Africa, Crete. Andrew commanded 22 Battalion, not 20 Battalion.
