Depicts the wireless station at St Gratien. Ensconsed in a temporary communication station in the chateau at St Gratien, Australian Head Quarters, two Australian soldiers seated on crates wearing headphones with telegraphic / wireless sets. These soldiers can be identified as signallers from the Royal Australian Engineers because they wear the distinctive blue and white arm band.
