This is a photo of Linda Mitselburg's grandfather, John James "Jack" Duncan. He was a mounted policeman in Wilcannia in the late 1920s. We are not sure of where the photo was taken, as he was also stationed in White Cliffs, Broken Hill, Menindee, Howlong, Wentworth and Ivanhoe during his time in the police. If you have an information that you can give us, it would be greatly appreciated.
