This black and white picture postcard features two sailors in fencing masks, participating in a fencing match on the top deck of a naval ship. A large group of sailors in white uniforms are seated around them watching the match. The handwritten title in the lower left corner reads "Fencing" and the photographer information is written in the lower right corner. The back of the postcard identifies the item as a postcard and provides indication for correspondence, address, and postage stamp placement.
