Bill Nash added (May 2022): "... Angus Buchanan VCMC ???? The shape of the face is appropriate. But there are medals pinned to his chest. Though the bright sparkly one is dominant I see a vestige of one to its left as you look at it so dull it merges with his jacket I would suggest by the fashions very close to the end of WW1. see He is of course hearing the crowd not seeing it! (Both My father (now deceased) and I are Old Monmothians like Buchanan.
