Group portrait of the ship's company on board the battle cruiser HMAS Australia. In the centre are the two 12 inch guns of A turret. On the right a two seater Sopwith 1 1/2 strutter biplane aircraft is balanced on a platform above the port gun turret. On 4 April and 14 May 1918 a two-seater Sopwith biplane had taken off from a similar platform on the starboard side; this had not been done before with a two seater aircraft.
