It documents his military service in Egypt, France, Belgium and his return to Australia via Capetown and the Quarantine Station, Point Nepean, 1916-1919.

Image depicting two unknown men in bathing trunks sitting on Front Beach at Quarantine Station, Australia. The image is dated April 1919 and is therefore probably taken after Sergeant Major Mulcahy's return to Australia.
