Yes discovered that during some research into My Grandad. He used a Kodak Autographic A1 camera (takes 616 autographic film) that I still have. We gave a lot of his pictures to the war memorial when he passed away but there is a pic of him in the AWM collection;

Looks posed to me...

Off Topic  (What---Herb off topic??---) but the Kodak Autographic got its name because it had a small window in the back that--with the original roll film (Not the later 616) you could write--with a stylus-- through a wax layer in the paper backing of the negative roll-- what the subject was, then hold the window up to a bright light for a number of seconds--and the subject title would appear in the margin of the print. I was told that the whole wax thing was short lived. I took a few pictures with an Autographic as a kid, By then, the film was 626 (I think) which used a spool with a smaller axle diameter--but still worked in the camera.

More arcane drivel from the boss

Hi all,
Sometimes the armour plating wasn't quite up to the job
https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/C01356/

https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/C01352/

and it was recovered and fixed up...
https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/C01360/

https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/C01400/


This probably led to the development of the "Protected"
https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/P03608.032 and "Armoured" versions.
https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/P03608.002

On a lighter note - anyone who want to buld one of these had better get used to counting rivets
