Inside the mobile office of No.3 Squadron, Royal Australian Air Force. Looking forward seated at his desk if Flying Officer Barney Terry, Adjutant, No.3 Squadron Base Party. This office is fully equipped, even to electric lights and fan. On the wall is a container for carrying maps. The possibility of sudden raids by enemy groups was not overlooked, hence the Tommy gun kept handy - just in case! Galaza, Libya.
