Kia ora - Just realised this is a photos of Harry Taituha being recorded by the NZ Broadcasting Service Mobile Unit in Egypt, after being freed as a POW https://natlib.govt.nz/records/23230487
Sadly I don't think the recording is one that is still in the sound archives- but I will keep an eye out for it.
