History and use
World War 1 souvenirs like this printed cotton scarf were produced in Egypt and England, often for the Australian soldier market. The troops bought the souvenirs and sent them home to their families, who often framed them or made them into cushion covers and other items. Some items were also exported to Australia and New Zealand and sold there. Depictions of the Gallipoli landing were popular subjects for the souvenirs.
