My grandfather, Alexander O'Keefe from Wyndham / Makarewa, served with the 6th Contingent, I'm positive that he is the man seated in the 2nd row, with moustache & dark hat, looking away from the camera. Alexander returned from South Africa and passed away in 1950.

Hi Ann - not sure about photos, but there is a Bertie O'Neil on Cenotaph: (note this spells surname with one l). Leonard's service record is available on Archway (again spelt with one l): . Regards, Jamie Mackay
