Summary: Domestic scenes of life on an RAF camp in Burma.
Description: A thatched wooden building fiercely ablaze. An airman does laundry in a metal bath. Men reaching for fruit on a tree. A local boy washing cups and dishes. Tents flapping in monsoon conditions; a Union flag strains on its flagpole. Two airmen, seated in a tent, drink tea. Airmen show a drawing to the camera. An improvised shower made of petrol tins and a bamboo pole. Man asleep in a tent. An Australian Flying Officer, wearing his rank on a wristband, sets an alarm clock. A naked airman sits in a bath and another pours water over his head. Another airman, again stark naked, has a shower by means of a punctured bucket hung between two trees.
