Finally Andy, a large format PDF file of your QAMR photo has now been posted on both the UPDATES page and also on our SITEMAP page under Large Format Photos., and may be viewed at:
http://www.nzmr.org/pdf/QAMR_andy1.pdf

We of course would like any information on this grand picture than anyone can provide. As a PDF file it can be enlarged for closer scrutiny by using the control in the browser (it certainly works well in the Google Chrome Browser)

Nice photo with lots of details.
In my view the photo is from the 1907-1910/11 period.
They are carry SMLE rifles which were issued to the North Island MR Regiments from 1907.
They are not standard issue WW1 Khaki tunic as they are a different pattern to the officers and ORs uniforms of the Territorial pattern first issued in early 1912.

the same photo is shown as "NEW" on the "Sitemap" page.
It is a PDF format to lower the size for the internet - On a Google Browser the image can be navigated about by using the + button. Or if people would like to save onto their own computer by right-clicking on the image, they can then enlarge and navigate on their own PDF program.

Steve,
Embarrassed to admit that I am a bit computer-challenged. When I copy that file name and insert it into google there is no photo. Also, I cannot find the "Sitemap" page.
