PICTURE OF THE DAY: WHITE FLAG FOR THE WOUNDED.

flag A white flag, called by the Army a flag of truce, was during the First world War usually represented more scrupulously than the Red Cross, around which many unfortunate incidents are recorded.  when a battle had died down there was often an official truce, if it did not interfere with military operations, in order that the wounded might be brought in from No Man's Land.  Here in the picture a party of Australian soldiers are bringing in wounded under protection of the White Flag in September 1916.
