Ink sketch shows a paddle steamer at the left, drawn up beside a lower barge at the right on which three New Zealanders and their horses are waiting. The text reads:
NZer (on barge): "Any room up there, old boy?"
The "Old Boy" (six months' service): "Do you know whom your [sic] addressing?"
The "Old Boy": Well! I'm an officah, and a regulah, and we regulahs don't like "Old Boy""
The paddle steamer could be a P50 rather than a P5. See "A naval history of World War I", by Paul G. Halpern (1995), page 131.
