A member of staff at the American Red Cross Service Club rearranges the flowers on the mantelpiece as three US soldiers relax in armchairs in front of the fire in what was once the Bishop's drawing room, now the Club lounge. Corporal E William (left) of 44 Glendale Road, Wellesley Hills, Massachusetts and Sergeant Harold Martin (centre) of 19 Willis Avenue, Floral Park, New York read the papers, whilst a third serviceman sleeps. The sign over the mantelpiece reads "Welcome to North and South Dakota, Iowa, Missouri" and refers to a jamboree which will be held by men from these States.
