Research notes

Thirty seven photographs [35421 - 35457] found with ration tin [40372] and surrender pass [40373].

These items were donated to the Museum by Mrs Elizabeth Dennis, daughter-in-law of the owner Mr Rainsford Edward Dennis. Mr Dennis was a Corporal Officer during the Second World War and served in Papua New Guinea with the 55th/53rd Australian Infantry Battalion between December 1941 and December 1943. The photographs depict village life in the Port Moresby area soon after World War II. It is unclear whether Mr Dennis was the photographer.
