Description:

First World War image showing a stretcher party helping injured soldier in trenches. The photograph seems to depict a direct hit on a building of some kind, which has left some men trapped in the rubble and mangled masonry. On a more prosaic note, the shorts worn by one of the would-be rescuers indicate that this is a scene from summer warfare in 1917 or 1918.
