An interesting photograph of a member of the Royal Marine Artillery posing with a nurse. The bursting grenade
Also the two colored stripes above his breast pocket would not normally be seen on a tropical uniform. It may be
that he is a convalescent recovering from sickness or wounds posing with his nurse. He has tucked a bayonet under
his belt no doubt to create a more martial air in his appearance. Also of note is the small pinback on his tunic that
depicts the hero of Mafeking, Baden Powell, who would go on to found the Boy Scouts.
