Summary: During the 10th Light Horse regiment's four-month training camp at Naval Base in early 1940, the Governor-General, Lord Gowrie, attended a training session to inspect the state's defence forces, when this photograph was taken. Parading on the beach, they gave the salute to Lord Gowrie, who received it from the top of the dunes. The shipwreck on the beach is most likely the Alacrity, blown ashore in the early 1930s on the southern side of Woodman Point.
