WW1 Official Soldier Portraits

Can anyone tell me please if all soldiers in WW1 had an official photograph taken. I have been able to find my Grandfather Walter Reginald Snow, but have not been able to locate one for his brothers, Frank Snow Service No: 920(not to be confused with Frank Noel Snow).

Thanks to your help earlier I was able to see a photo of another brother William Arthur Snow in a Trove Newspaper.

Would very much like to see one of Frank.

I believe he was with C Company.

Any information would be greatly…

Arthur Snow and Maria (nee Scannell)

I am now seeking help in finding out about my Great Parent's arrival in Australia.

We know that they were in Leicester, Leicestershire England for their marriage in 1876 and a son Walter was born there in 1877. A daughter Kate Elizabeth Snow was born in Wellington, South Africa in 1880 and a 2nd daughter Annie Clara Snow may also have been born there in 1882. All we know is that they were in Melbourne, Victoria in 1887 when other children were born.

They ended up living in…
