Captured Field Guns


I’ve recently purchased a lot of press photographs of the Great War. Such pictures usually show well known subjects… Anyway, I consider that the text written on their backs is often interesting.

This one was published by the “Photo Central News Staff Photographer” and bears the following legend, glued on paper: “With the British Army in France. German Field Guns captured by British troops being sent down by rail for conveyance to England”.

The caption had been then translated into Italian, as it seems it was used by Argus Agency, based in Milan.

I was sure I had already this nice picture of British and French soldiers, but a research on Google Images did not give any result. Did you know this picture?
