Lice and leave


One of my favorite Poulbot‘s drawings: “lucky you: your father had a leave!”, which presents in the very same drawing two problems of the soldiers of the Great War: the always present lice and the lack of leaves. In France, leaves were granted starting from July 1915, but were scarse until 1917. Because of the mutinies of French Army in 1917, the system of leave of extended and organized in a better way.
