DescriptionIllustration for the wartime publication 'The Australian Soldier - A Portrait'. Depicts of a convoy of military trucks travelling along a road.

In 1944 Russell Drysdale was commissioned to illustrate the wartime publication 'The Australian Soldier - A Portrait' by John Hetherington. Drysdale produced many illustrations for the publication and revised his selection as he progressed. This drawing was not included in the final selection, yet is representative of the style and execution of those that were.
