This black-and-white photograph shows two women and two uniformed servicemen in a backyard featuring a homemade air-raid shelter during the Second World War. The two men, Private Dick of the AIF and US soldier Tom Squires, are standing in the shelter with Anthea Dyke while Doreen Smythe is jokingly pointing a hose at them. The Australian soldier's slouch hat and uniform jacket are hanging on a garden trellis in the background. A corrugated iron roof lies on the ground by the air-raid trench and hens can be seen in a pen against the back fence.
