Who's in this photo from December 1917?

Recommended Posts

Eran Tearosh

I've been asked about this photo. 

 

08014r.jpg.96ca09193fa7034d51f12376cd37ba01.jpg

 

This is taken from the Matson (G. Eric and Edith) Photograph Collection - Library of Congress/LOC (LC-M32-50014-x [P&P]).

The title is: "Field Marshall Allenby accepts surrender of Jerusalem officials" (LOC remark - Title from negative sleeve).

 

I understand this as being the officials that were with Allenby on Dec. 11th. Someone is arguing that Allenby himself is in the

photo (I don't see him here). Can anyone help to identify these officers (I recognize Chetwood & Shea, but prefer to hear fresh

views)? And even better - the location (Again - I have my ideas, but would love to hear other ideas)?

Eran,

 

I've a feeling that this particular photogtraph has been discussed before here on the GWF

Never mind: I aree that the LoC caption is wrong and that Allenby is not pictured here

[It always strikes me that Chetwode looks very bored sitting there]

Sorry, I've no idea re the location

 

regards

Michael

Thank you, Michael.

 

I share the same deja vu feeling, that this photograph was discussed here...

And I also agree about Chetwode...

 

See you soon,

 

Eran

Did a quick search of the forum for Chetwode and both of you came up as posters in various topics but as far as I could see only one of Michael's old topics had a picture but it's not the same:
