The Great War, I was there - Part 17

HEp CAN SITUP AND TAKE NOT ICE British soldiers were always ready to help wounded German prisoners, and unwounded prisoners were often detailed to lend a hand as stretcher-bearers. Here four Gennan prisoners, who have come through the fight scatheless, are carrying shoulder high a stretcher on which is a wounded British soldier. He is still very much alive and able to situp and wave a remonstrance to a photographer who is “snapping ”him in this undignified position. Photo, Imperial War Museum
