Booklet 24: Ekka Roundup
Brisbane – WW2 v Now Photo Booklets...From An American Archives' Photo Viewpoint

An Australian cavalry man rides a chariot pulled by a wild bull; the chariot rod is built so that the bull can turn and chase the rider, at the Australian Cavalry Unit and American 1st Cavalry Division rodeo, Exhibition grounds, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. 26 December 1943.

There must have been some GPS sports event preceding this rodeo. Schools named are Toowoomba Grammar, CEGS, and BBC are some I can read.
