    Australian soldiers relaxing and on duty in Egypt.

  • Description

    World War One: Australian army camp near the Pyramids in Egypt.

    Shot of 5 soldiers with a donkey, joking, clowning and being silly in front of camera. One man moves the donkey's ears around like signal flags, another takes off his friend's hat and puts it on the animal. Various shots of Australian soldiers behind stacked sandbag barricade manning heavy artillery. Desert landscape in distance but no shots of pyramids.

    Military, Anzac.

    Modified WPA record.
