The Unknown Soldiers of 2nd Australian Advanced Ordnance Corp

Can you help identify any of the unnamed soldiers in this photograph?  These men would have been stationed at Bathurst at some point between 1941 and 1944 and served with my father, Ronald Norman Di Salvia, in the 2nd Australian Advanced Ordnance Corp.  The family history buff in me would like to put some names to faces, but also share this photograph with descendants of these men.

Ronald Norman Di Salvia is on the far left, next to him is a man named Ernie ?, and beside him is Douglas Hampton Grisdale.  I have just recently made contact with a descendant of Doug Grisdale, the man my brother Douglas Norman Di Salvia is named after, and I have been able to pass the photograph on to them.

Any help would be very much appreciated.

    1. Thankyou, I also believe these men need to be remembered. I have just briefly checked out your site and it carries some wonderful information – I will be back to visit it again soon.
