One of 44 black and white photographs in an album bound in green suede, believed to have been taken by Sergeant Major Gilbert Payne Mulcahy during World War I. It documents his military service in Egypt, France, Belgium and his return to Australia via Capetown and the Quarantine Station, Point Nepean, 1916-1919.

Image of a boxing match between two unknown combatants on board the H.M.T. Kashmir. The image is dated 1919 and therefore the Kashmir is likely to be bound for Australia.
