Description

WWII-Natives/New Guinea.
Ink drawing of a native from behind who is smoking and carrying a satchel on a stick.
Verso: "Spring 1945."
Maurice explained that natives were very free about walking through camp. This one was just walking through camp smoking as he walked. Items of use for amusement were often stolen by natives so they always had someone keep watch or locked up anything they wanted to keep. The natives loved American newspapers because they could use them to roll into long cigarettes because they could roll an almost two foot long cigarette. Any newspaper page that had a colored comic strips was priceless for them.
