The man standing on stage is Alfred Edward Giles, who was a chaplain at Loveday with the rank of Captain. Born at St Arnaud in the Wimmera region of Victoria in 1900, Giles enlisted in June 1945 when he was living in Campbell Town, Tasmania. He was sent to Loveday, living at the camp while his wife and children were living at Barmera. His daughter remembers going to the camp with him and being introduced to the Italian prisoners behind the wire. After his discharge in early 1946 Giles became minister at the Presbyterian church in Murray Bridge for four years, while the family lived at the manse in Verdun Street. Later Alfred became minister at Hawthorn church in Adelaide. He died in 1966.
