Description

WWII-Tent Life/New Guinea.
Ink drawing of the inside of a tent on a platform.
Verso: "Thursday Dec. 7, 1944. This will give you an idea of what our tents are like. Note the palatial splendour exemplified by the raised wooden floors. The mosquito bars are hung up above the cots. At night they are lowered keeping the mosquitoes, which are outside, outside; and those which are inside, inside. Of course, when all is considered, less mosquitoes bite you, although the ones who do bite you bite oftener. When gorged with one's corpuscles they are said to desist from further biting. Should the victims blood supply give out before they have had their fill they also then cease biting and fly about the inside of the mosquito bar uttering muffled curses sotto voce."
Maurice.1684.
