Description

A rough sketch showing personnel of No 1 Tactical Air Force Headquarters, Royal Australian Air Force, lining up for their issue of bottled beer from Australia. This event stood out even more prominently than usual owing to the dull type of existence being experienced since over-throw of the Japanese on the island.
