DescriptionAn unidentified soldier stands in jungle-like surrounds, figures can be seen furtively moving with backs to the viewer in the background. The figures do not appear to be very welcoming to the soldier. Two 'identity discs' made from a zinc etching plate hang below the image. This work comments on the enduring impact of the Vietnam war experience on the soldiers and their families.
