This is a picture within a picture. I snapped this shot of Private Jack Pickett of the 2nd Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment with his tracker dog, Jewel.

The date was July 10, 1950, during the Emergency in old Malaya. The British and the Australian Forces were in the Malayan jungles battling the Communists. This is a visual reminder of what the country went through in its early years and how our foreign friends stood by us.
