US delegates visit Canadian Corps headquarters, Western Front, March 1918. A visit by six American delegates of the Loyal Order of the Moose, one of them in uniform, to the headquarters of the Canadian Corps on 17 March 1918. They are met by (possibly) Prince Arthur of Connaught and watch a close order drill demonstration on a football pitch.

II. British troops in the rear areas near Bapaume during the Kaiserschlacht Offensive, Western Front, 22 and 23 March 1918. Between Péronne and Bapaume, Holt tractors pull a battery of 6-inch 26cwt howitzers down the road, followed by supply lorries. Horses of the Royal Field Artillery and two battalions of Infantry also come down the road. There is much dust. A group of soldiers rest on board a lorry. One sleeps on the trail of a 18-pounder field gun. A battery, probably of 6-inch howitzers, waits in column, and the opportunity is taken to issue hay to the horses. The second subject gives a very good visual impression of rear areas during a Western Front battle.
