Image: Portrait format watercolour sketch, executed fluidily and quickly from the perspective of the artist's tent, from which a guy rope trails from the picture plane at the lower right, of a view of a group of Anzac uniformed soldiers. A pair of soldiers stand with their backs to the viewer in the left middleground; the figure on the left wears a blue shirt and braces with khaki trousers; the right figure wears a khaki skirt with the sleeves rolled up, khaki jodhpurs and puttees. Both wear hats and face the brightly lit scene against a blue sky. Behind them and facing the viewer, a soldiers is seated inside the opening to a sand-coloured tent, which casts only a small amount of shade in the bright sun. Two other soldiers walk through the background of the desert landscape as if attending to tasks out of view. The artist's tonal composition of white, sand and blue, reveals the heat and bleached effect on the terrain of the weather.
