Shared Experience: Art and War
Dadswell explained his inspiration for Greece this way:
As none of the official artists have recorded the Greek campaign I have based my work along those lines. Greece group represents the 16th Australian Infantry Brigade during the march back over Mount Olympus. Straining, climbing, exhausted, half frozen soldiers. Owing to complete absence of roads, lack of unit transport, intense cold and great distances covered, this movement stands high as a feat of physical endurance.
