A group of prisoners of war forming a working party, one carrying a fire bucket to provide fire or a light for cigarettes. A Japanese guard walks amongst them. The men not sent to the Burma-Thailand railway and who remained in Changi formed these parties for various duties needed to keep the camp running. The Japanese also required work parties to build an aerodrome located just outside Changi camp.
