Alexandria, Egypt, 1915. Watched by a large crowd of spectators, most of them soldiers, two teams of soldiers contest a tug-of-war during a sports carnival at the Alexandria Sports Club. At least one of the teams (right) is made up of Australian soldiers. Most of the spectators are wearing pith helmets, as is an officer at the centre of the rope to judge the contest.
