Korea, c. 1950-10. Using a NAAFI wooden box for a wicket, members of the 3rd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR), enjoy an impromptu game of cricket on a dirt road in the Korean countryside. Behind the wicket, a slips fieldsman, a spectator with his hands in his pockets and a wicketkeeper with his hands outstretched watch as the batsman, 5/1123 Private Tommy Saunders of the Sniper Section, whacks the ball away. Another fieldsman (left) stands off the side of the road. In the background, a patchwork of rice paddy fields stretches away into the distance. (Donor I. Robertson)
