morgan-darcy-or-geoffrey-kiddleIs this Geoffrey Kiddle of Walbundrie Station or Morgan Rostrom D’Arcy of Albury?
This unnamed portrait, from the AlburyCity Collection, was taken in India, and shows the uniform of a cavalry regiment, so it might be D’Arcy who spent five years with the 8th Bengal Cavalry before WWI.
Kiddle died in the British Hospital at Basra in 1916 and later, his father donated his sword to the Albury Club.  It was stolen about 9 years go.
D’Arcy survived the war and died in 1953. He is buried in the Albury Pioneer Cemetery with others of his family, none of whom appear to currently live in the district.
