GIs Pfc Roy St Jean (of 292 Union Street, Springfield, Massachusetts), Corporal Allan Decker (of 1657 South Central Park Avenue, Chicago) and Corporal James Flower (of 173 High Plain Street, Walpole, Massachusetts) talk to Mrs Howarth, the wife of the village schoolmaster, in the shade outside the village canteen in Burton Bradstock, Dorset. According to the original caption, Mrs Howarth opened the canteen in 1939 and it is open "whenever anyone likes to bang on the door". Tea or coffee costs a penny, as do sandwiches or cakes.
