A khaki cotton drill frock with three military pockets, two on the skirt and one on the left breast. It has a self-coloured belt with a brown plastic buckle. There are nine brown plastic buttons down the front and a smaller brown button at the neck. There is a single brown plastic button at each sleeve cuff and the two pockets on the shirt. A button is missing from the pocket on the breast.
This frock was part of the uniform of Sybil Kate Baker who was a member of the WWSA - Waitara " Canteen " group. This group was a support service for the Waitara Home Guard and other military groups stationed at Waitara. They would provide morning teas and other meals for the men while they were on training exercises.
