“Quoits on deck.” Exterior view showing soldiers and crew playing Quoits, a game throwing ropes over pegs, on the deck of the SS Durham Castle. The photographer Lt. Irvine, RAMC, was on route to the campaign in German East Africa. ❧ The image is from an album chronicling the war time experiences of Archibald Clive Irvine (1893-1974) in East Africa. During this time he would meet Dr John W Arthur which in turn would lead to his missionary work at Chogoria in Kenya.
