DescriptionBlack and white photograph of a group of soldiers dressed in military uniform stood waiting at a bar in Esbekiah Gardens. The group is made up of various nationalities (deduced by style of military service cap), including Australians, Britons and New Zealanders. The different uniforms feature the British service cap, British tropical hat, Australian slouch hat and New Zealand 'lemon squeezer' hat. Behind the bar women are serving the soldiers drinks and are wearing aprons and straw boater hats with ribbons. An Egyptian man wearing a tarboosh, shirt, tie and apron can also be seen stood behind the bar.
