English: Preparing for an exhibition of photographs depicting war damage in Europe, Brisbane, November 1941

Preparations for an exhibition of the seventy photographs showing war damage, sent to the Courier Mail by the London Press Club and the British Ministry of Information. The exhibition was held in Brisbane City Hall basement from Monday 3 November 1941 and was officially opened by the Vice Mayor Alderman Tait. Proceeds from the exhibition were to aid funds for the Toc H Services Club. (Description supplied with photograph).

TOC H was established during World War 1. It started in a house in a Belgian town named Poperinge, a few miles behind the front-line trenches. The house was called Talbot House (whose initials, in army telephone jargon, give TOC H its distinctive name). In this house a young Army chaplain, the Rev. 'Tubby' Clayton, set up a rest centre for soldiers.
