Title: War Correspondent at His Typewriter
Description: Robert Doyle types stories about the Red Arrow Division in his tent while seated on his cot. The tent sides are tied open. A crate serves as a typewriter stand and a canteen is on a picnic-style table on the right. The can beneath the table has a label that reads "Defense Pure Coffee." A flashlight is tied to the tent pole and other equipment and clothing are behind Doyle. On the reverse of the print is written: "Australia," so the location may be Camp Cable, south of Brisbane.
