Print of a political cartoon from the 'Bulletin' featuring a Sunshine Reaper-Binder in a military context 'harvesting' a field of soldiers that the machine is tying into bundles like sheaves of hay crops. The caption reads: "Reckon we'll get two thousand to the acre, Sarge!". Drawn by Eric Jolliffe. It is possible that the military context is World War II and Australians defeating the Italians in North Africa or the Middle East.
