The man, second from the right, seems
to be saluting with his left hand.
I wondered if the image had been
mistakenly printed in reverse.

Thanks Ray,
Although the image is actually as shown initially, I've flipped the image so that it's more realistic.

I appreciate Ray's observation and Servatius's explanation. The term realistic is so apt when I saw the reverse. Unbelievable how much better this photograph is in reverse.
