This graphite drawing shows two women with boxes of bananas and bread rolls, one opening a notebook. They are shown underneath a tarpaulin tent with a woven bamboo screen to one side. Surrounding them are soldiers, some smoking, some eating the bread rolls and biscuits.

The sketch is inscribed 'women entered the battlefield and are selling cake. Quang Binh.'
