Looking for Enlistment Photograph WW1

I'm looking for an enlistment photograph of my grandfather, who was killed during WW1. I've been told that photos taken of soldiers on enlistment are held in the archives, but despite spending a very long time doing numerous searches, I've had no luck. Would anyone please be able to give me some advice on how to find this photo - none exist in the family, and I'd love to know what he looked like. Many thanks.

Try to locate family in Australia

After many years of wondering about family members I found this site and hope it may shed some light. I have visited Oz on a number of occasions myself but never seem to have the time to spend researching this, although I did visit the records office in Sydney on one last visit.

So, my family members left UK in the summer of 1969 (could have been 1970).  They were a family of eight.  The family name is Weir.

Richard (43)

Trying to find a £10 pom

I am trying to find George Johnson who was a £10 pom and emigrated in 1965 or 1966. He lived in Nottingham and would be about 72 now. By trade he was a roofer but also played the drums and was an excellent swimmer. Also had a deaf & dumb brother. Unable to find him on the passenger lists.
