YMCA K 1 3\YMCA_K_1_3_89_T.jpg

DescriptionBlack and white photograph of a hospital scene at Luna Park Hospital in Cairo. It features a large open hall filled with military personnel laying in hospital beds. The majority are wearing striped pyjamas, but some can be seen wearing military uniform. Other people are stood on a balcony overlooking the hospital beds, and flags are hung up on the far side including the Union Jack. The photograph was taken from above and the inpatients can be seen looking up towards the camera. Some of the inpatients have bandages on their legs and slings for their arms. The group is made up of various nationalities (deduced by style of military service cap that some are wearing), including Australians and Britons. The different military uniforms feature the British service cap and Australian slouch hat.

There are three copies of this photograph.
