YMCA K 1 3\YMCA_K_1_3_93_T.jpg

DescriptionBlack and white photograph of a large group in a YMCA skating theatre in Cairo. The group is predominantly made up of soldiers dressed in uniform 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. A few Egyptian men each wearing a tarboosh can also be seen in the photograph, and a gentleman wearing a suit and bowler hat in stood in the middle. The skating theatre is lit up by flood lights and the entrance to the park as well as a man stood behind a bar wearing a bow tie and waistcoat can be seen in the background.

There are two copies of this photograph. The other is larger but less defined and yellowing.
