Stretcher-bearers with wounded, some German, arrive at an advanced dressing station. (Some of the bearers are German prisoners with Red Cross armbands.) Described as Achiet-le-Grand but possibly 65th Field Ambulance, 21St Division, near Epéhy on 18 September. At the entrance to a bell tent a British doctor removes the bandage from a German with a head wound, wiping the blood away as he does so. A group of British troops sit wearing light overalls with their regimental caps. They are described as men who have been gassed and have changed out of their gas-laden clothes, but show no signs of distress.
