Depicts Sergeant Barrett conducting French lessons with six soldiers on top of the ship's deck. Another soldier's silhouette can bee seen behind the main group holding papers or a book. He is not likely to be participating in the lessons as he's out of the Sergeant's eyeline. The ship's funnel is being used as a blackboard instructing the servicemen on how to ask for bread, salt, milk and beer in French.
