Description:

First World War image of British soldiers with kitbags pose for the camera at night. The men are probably returning from a spell on duty, which accounts for the mud-covered uniform and exhausted appearance. The sacks may well contain rations taken from a store which has been manned by men of the Army Service Corps.
