Black and white photograph showing a United States military parade on the Melbourne Cricket Ground in 1943. In the foreground, five figures are standing in formation, and in front of them a larger group. Further away are six groups of different sizes, also standing in formation. In the centre of the image, flag-bearers are carrying the Stars and Stripes and the First Marines Division colours. In the background is the boarded-up Southern Stand. The picture has been taken from just outside the boundary fence.
