The Great War, I was there - Part 8

PLUG‘ STREET* MEANS 'MUD* TO MANY WHO REMEMBER IT “Some mud,” the late Aubrey Smith of the London Rifle Brigade comments ruefully in his lively reminis­cences in these pages. Left, a British officer resists the slime with stout gum-boots and layers of straw. Even cold water fora trench shave (above) was muddy and below, a water-logged trench is laboriously baled out.
