Description

Men are naked and swimming in the Hagiti River. Dargie noted, "This bathing pool by the ford and swaying footbridge over the Hagiti River was possibly one of the most familiar sights to the troops of Milne Force. A little further down, the transport drivers would drive their vehicles into the stream to wash off some of the eternal mud of the roads".
