British troops landing at Ostend

I’ve found this picture in the first volume of the La Guerra delle Nazioni published by the Fratelli Treves in Italy. This book was published in 1915, probably just before Italy’s entry in war, which explains that this book seems, at first fight, rather neutral. Its pictures come from France, Britain or Germany. In some cases they were done by Italian artists, such as this scene which shows the landing of British troops at Ostend in 1914.
