Object description

image: an interior view of a large open room in a YMCA hut filled with military personnel. In the left foreground a few soldiers, newly arrived, stand with their kit. Across the rest of the foreground, soldiers sit and stand chatting, with most of them British soldiers but also a few Americans and Canadians. Two of the men wear blue convalescent uniforms, one standing with his arm in a sling. Further back a few men stand at a bar or food counter, whilst other men gather around what appears to be a billiard table.
