Francis (Frank) John Gosson was born at Macksville, New South Wales, on 28 June 1919. During World War II, he served with the 53rd Battalion from 19 February 1940 through to 7 June 1943. In 1942 he was involved in action against the Japanese near Port Moresby and salvaged a series of photographs, which predated the war, from an abandoned house near Rouna Falls. Frank Gosson gave the photographs to an ex Papua New Guinea Patrol Officer (KIAP), Robert Cruikshank, who referred them to the National Archives of Australia. The National Archives of Australia transferred the collection to the Pacific Research Archives in 2012.
