Description

Santa Claus arrives at the Christmas party given by the 1st Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (1RAR), to two hundred Korean children from villages near the Gallipoli camp. Santa found some straggling guests on the way to the party and gave them a lift in his sleigh, the fire chief's bright red jeep. An unidentified soldier is sitting in the back of the jeep with the children.
