Men of the Newfoundland Regiment, just out of the line, marching to their rest billets, Western Front, possibly May 1917.

The marchers, in greatcoats and helmets, are very muddy. A considerably smarter marching column is passing the other way. The Newfoundlanders look as if they have just been taken out of the line, possibly after the Battle of Arras, in which they played a key role, May 1917.
