DescriptionLambert completed this painting between 9-10 July 1919 after his visit to Gallipoli with the Australian Historical Mission. The image relates to the New Zealand Expeditionary Force, Australian and New Zealand Mounted Division, 'Chaytor's Force'. Lambert wrote in July 1919 as he was about to leave for England: "Remounts are still here and many of my old pals but a lot of Desert has come back and a lot of tents have been folded and a lot of good & tried men have left for their home in Australia."
