  • Description

    Colonial Army Service Corps - preparing and transporting food for Australians near Gallipoli.

    Turkey.

    Group of men sit on the ground stirring something round & round - grinding meal? Some fabric hangs down. Men wear small turbans or skullcaps - don't know just where they are from; but in this shot; they look possibly Middle-Eastern / Arab.

    LS river; with bridge across; men carry boards across bridge. Then back to the original scene: 2 men sit on either side of a grindstone; operating the thing together - each holding onto handle; and rocking back & forth. Horse or mule is hitched to wagon in BG.

    Colonialism; labour; supplies; World War One.
