From Wagga Wagga in 1943, Mainwaring wrote to Treloar: 'There is a good deal of interesting subject matter here, and I would like to be able to spend more time to capture the spirit of the place? I have done several drawings, one of a party of sappers working with a well-borer, and one of some sappers about to work on maintenance of a search light.' (AWM 205/002/008 02)
