King's Review 27 September 1916

In the book "Monash: The Outsider Who Won A War" by Roland Perry, there is quite a lengthy description of the review of the 3rd Division of the 1st AIF (under John Monash) by the King George V. It took place on 27th September 1916 on Bulford Field.

A sentence reads: "Monash's mounted retinue included Jackson, Farmar and a two-metre tall Australian military police standard bearer."

I am endeavouring to identify the two-metre tall Australian military policeman, who can be seen in the Australian War Memorial Negative number: P00997.019 at:

Any advice would be welcomed. Thanks in anticipation.

From 'War letters of General Monash' ed. F. M. Cutlack

"My own retinue comprised my A.D.C. (Eric), my G.S.O.I (Jackson), my A.A.G. (Farmar), one standard-bearer (one of my mounted military police, a splendid Australian, 6 feet 7 inches tall), and one mounted trumpeter."

But, alas, no name
