DESCRIPTION

A soldier is standing on the ramp leading to the camp toilet suspended over the water, with a roll of toilet paper sitting on the edge. On the right is a water barrel on a platform with a shower head. Up four wooden steps to a platform is a wash basin on the other side of the water barrel. Towels are on the far right. Trees on the shore offer some privacy. The location is Dreger Harbor on the north coast of New Guinea (present day Papua New Guinea). Note on the back of the print, "Shower and one holer."
