Depicts a portrait of S3196 Able Seaman John F Burke, HMAS Kapunda, bosun's pipe (or call) in hand, pipping "Wakey, Wakey, Lash up and stow" which greets the matelots as they roll over in their hammocks about to commence another day at sea resisting His Majesty's enemies - and more watches to keep.
