Thanks Mack,
I must admit you surprise me, I just assumed it wouyld be documented.
Its not something I ever thought of before but I am researching 8580 Pte. George Garside, 17th Bn. who enlisted 3.9.1914 but doesn't appear on the photos or the list of names.

I found out he was discharged on 1.6.1915 with a heart problem.
Assuming he was sent from Heaton Park to the Depot or elswhere a short time before that date I figured he must have missed the photo shoot.

I suppose that means it could have been taken in May 1915.

Lets see if any member has any further info.
