The Great War, I was there - Part 27

p i mI«« m m MI<:¦¦n 11• V n ’fffV /'W 'V I'"'V ^r-T J * P WHEN THERE WAS LAUGHTER IN ARRAS By the middle of May 1917 the battles of Arras were drawing to a dose and it was possible for the sorely-tried troops to have some relaxation. Above is a group of spectators at a horse show on May 17,1917, at Liencourt, west of Arras, where,as Sir Philip Gibbs instates this chapter, the troops had their playground and there was laughter in Arras. The horse show, in this case, was held by the 15th (Scottish) Division, and military wagons from the divisional transport form a grand-stand occupied by officers and men of many units.
