Wednesday, 14th Feburary 1945.

The caption reads: BEARDED RATINGS of the Royal Navy enjoying their pots of beer at the Naafi Fleet canteen in Goulburn street, Sydney, on its opening night on Saturday. Under supervision of the Naval patrol, sailors will be able to drink between 6pm and 9pm seven nights a week. British sailors who visited the canteen at the weekend voted it first class.

The man on the left is AB (LTO) Walter May and a one-badge Leading Seaman, presumably also from HMS Wager, is on the right.
