Two Australian troops at Hora Sfakia
Hofa Sfakia, a small village situated on the bony south coast of Crete, was the point where allied ships evacuated what troops they could. The allied troops, tired, thirsty and threatened had to trudge through the rough, rocky and moutainous landscape of Crete, to reach the south coast. In this work the faces of two weary Australian's almost blend into the landscape.
