Who is this First World War soldier?

Berry photo Matheson - Copy (Custom)Some of you may have seen the excellent documentary on TV1’s Sunday programme in late September about a Te Papa project to identify soldiers photographed in Wellington before they went off to fight in the First World War.  A collection of glass negatives was discovered in a cupboard in Wellington some years ago, and now with the approaching centenary of the war work is under way to identify the photographs’ subjects.

One of the negatives is identified with the name Matheson.  Who is this person?  Can you help tell his story?  Find out more here.
