Description:
Robert James Macgregor Barnet enlisted in the AIF on 4 January
1916, giving his occupation as surveyor's assistant. After basic
training he sailed for the front, disembarking at Marseilles in May 1916.
He died of wounds accidentally recieved in the field in August 1916.
He was buried in the Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery near Poperinge in
Belgium.
This photograph, presumably taken shortly before he embarked,
shows him with Eugene Henry Stanley Nicolle, a friend of the Barnet
family at Wollongong.
Robert Barnet himself took the photograph using a small folding
Kodak camera mounted on a tripod and fitted with an extension cord
shutter release.
