The Regimental Madcot Print With Replica Rising Sun Badges
The image in this commemorative piece shows the 9th and 10th Australian Infantry Battalions lines at Mena Camp, Egypt looking towards the Pyramids. The soldier in the foreground is playing with a kangaroo, the regimental mascot.
Many Australian units brought Kangaroos and other Australian animals with them to Egypt, and some were given to the Cairo Zoological Gardens when the units went to Gallipoli. This is a quintessentially Australian image which has been framed with two replica Rising Sun badges framed to a gallery standard.
