WWI Gunner Cecil Earl Rupert Tulloh Collection

1914-1919. Consisting of 239 items: 229 photographic or printed postcards; seven vintage silver gelatin photographs; one printout paper photograph; and two letterpress menus, many postcards inscribed, annotated or dated “1914” through to “28.6.1919” in ink recto and verso by Tulloh, sizes range from 8 x 11.5cm to 15.1 x 20.5cm. Silvering, slight foxing.

Cecil Earl Rupert Tulloh enlisted in the AIF on 27 June 1918 at South Head, NSW, at the age of 20 years and 11 months. He joined the 36th Australian Heavy Artillery Group, 20th Reinforcement as a gunner, and embarked on the SS Gaika from Sydney on 30 July 1918. These postcards, addressed to “Gladys”, document Tulloh’s journey from Durban, South Africa (and a stop in Egypt), through to England, Germany, France, Scotland, and back to England. Most postcards are light-hearted in tone, such as one from France, 22nd Feb. 1919, stating “We are having a good time over here, that is I mean we are quite comfortable to do as we like, and get plenty of tip-top food, so that goes a long way towards making one content.” Others are descriptions of historical places visited, such as Napoleon’s tomb, and from Saltash, England, 5th Nov. 1918, where he describes how “we saw the date on one dwelling…and it was 1584. Just imagine Glad, nearly 200 years before Australia was even discovered by old Capt. Cook.” Additional photographs show the 2nd Australian Siege Battery in France. Also included in the collection are four photographs from Lille and Ypres in 1914 and 1915, annotated in Tulloh’s hand, and possibly sent to him by a comrade. Cecil Tulloh disembarked from Southampton, England and returned home to Sydney on the 22nd July 1919, on the on the SS Ulysses. Ref: AWM; NAA.
