Object description

image: A civilian woman dressed in a long dress and head scarf stands facing an Officer with her hand outstretched, holding a piece of cloth. A small child stands next to her clinging to her skirt. The Officer, who has a gun slung over his shoulder, is looking at her blankly. Behind these two figures are two more British soldiers with some local children peeping out from behind their legs.
