DescriptionIn billets at Flesselles. A member of the Australian 2nd Battalion "carrying on" with his correspondence. The muddy state of the yard was not quite so bad as the trenches. Note the canvas action cover which protects the breech of his rifle. The soldier is wearing his hat back-to-front, possibly to keep the sun out of his eye while he writes.
