Two central soldier figures, possibly a portrait of Alexander Paton. The soldier facing away from the viewer represents the soldier at war, while the hatless soldier facing the viewer, with arms folded, is about to be repatriated. In the background the artist focuses on six pairs of hands engaged in activities representing each stage of the repatriated soldier's processing, including medical and dental checks, first aid kits etc.
