AIF recruitment window display at Henry Buck's store, Swanston Street, Melbourne LTA 1926 f.2

Window display featuring a stuffed kangaroo and a papier-mache bulldog wearing tin helmets. It also features a large Union Jack instead of the Australian flag. The shop is Henry Buck's, a men's clothing store. The display takes a light-hearted approach to what was a very serious matter.
