After the death of Stalin, Soviet leaders Khrushchev and Bulganin visited British Prime Minister Eden at his country residence in Buckinghamshire.
 
Photographers were restricted to innocuous arrival and departure pictures of the motorcade, but Moore's humorous shot of two small boys with guns was published across two pages of Life magazine, with the caption 'BIG TROUBLE AHEAD FOR B AND K'.

This photograph was included in the David Moore 100 Photographs series that toured the State Library of NSW (titled David Moore 100 photographs) in late 2005. The exhibition then travelled to Monash Gallery of Art, Melbourne, in 2006, changing its title to David Moore A Vision, 1927-2003; and then to Bendigo Art Gallery (2006), Shepparton Art Gallery (2006), Albury Regional Art Gallery (2007), Gold Coast City Art Gallery (2007), Wollongong City Gallery (2007), Mildura Arts Centre (2008), and finally to LaTrobe Regional Gallery (2008). A Limited Edition of the series was also produced.
