View over water towards the New Guinea coast from a boat. A larger boat is on the right and several smaller craft in the center. A pier is on the shoreline, and soldiers and indigenous people stand on the beach. Supplies are probably being transferred from the larger ship to smaller boats for the trip to a military camp. The jungle and a hill are in the background.
