When a prisoners-of-war in Japanese hands was required to move from one camp to another, he was required to personally carry all his belongings with him. The drawing shows an Australian POW with all his wordly possessions in transit. It was originally intended to be an illustration in a book about the 8th Division AIF's experiences in Malaya during the Second World War.
