- Elongated paper poster on off-white paper, featuring watercolour image of three soldiers hiding behind a wall, viewed from behind, and bold inscription. They are pointing rifles through gaps in the bricks, across a field to trees in the distance. Each wears a khaki jacket, hat and pack. Two black lines form a border around the image. Edges of poster have become a little ragged. The poster is vertically creased in two places; holes in each corner suggest it has been pinned up at some stage.
