The original gelatin silver prints are approximately 75 × 100 mm (some a little smaller, some a little larger). One of the photographs is of a blackboard inscribed '6 RSU [Number 6 Repair and Salvage Unit RAAF] Balikpapan, Borneo. Coppersmiths & Welders. Honour Roll 1945', with a list of twelve names. About a dozen photographs feature aircraft; a dozen feature servicemen (some named); and there is a very good series of six images of the destruction wrought on Balikpapan.
