Corporal Alicia Carr, Darwin 1999

by Wendy Sharpe (b. 1960)

…I met Alicia in the mess at Robertson Barracks, Darwin. The first time I saw her she was pretending to hit a large male soldier and laughing vivaciously. She later told me that her boyfriend (also in the army) was in East Timor. He'd asked for a photo of her. She thought she'd like to send him a nude drawing instead. We agreed it would be fun to pose her in her army boots and hat.
