Tanzania you have some finger trouble!! :>)
Yes Australian could be CAV but I think just a normal commissioned officer. The image is poor quality but I think it is an official Aussie image, War photography etc so maybe with a bit of research it is possible to find out.

Sir thanks for the message. Without doubt Aussie but unit/type unknown to me. I am sent quite regularly many MG images but I suspect this may be an official photo, like War Correspondent, etc.
