A group of men with furled flags and horse march on a dirt road
A black and white image of a group of men carrying furled flags and dressed in period costume, marching along a dirt road in the country, during the 1987 Coo-ee Reenactment March. The group is marching over a slight rise toward the camera and is led by a man dressed in full World War 1 army uniform, leading a horse. The men are reenacting the original Coo-ee march where approximately 20 patriots left Gilgandra on October 10, 1915 and marched to Sydney to enlist in the war, gathering more than 250 recruits from other farming communities along the way. This image was shot while filming Coo-ee 1988
