The Great War, I was there - Part 26

SOLDIERS ARE THEIR FRIENDS AGAIN Life for those who were children during the war and who remained near the firing line was filled for the most part with terrors, misery and hardship. But there were times when the youngsters found joy and laughter, as instanced in this photograph, taken in Bouvincourt, near P£ronne, in March 1917- The field-grey of the invader has gone and the khaki of the advancing British Tommies has taken its place. In an old stove the men have made afire, and, with their little friends, have gathered round, making a queer but cheerful company. Imperial War Museum
