A Stretcher Case

Here’s a photograph by Frank Hurley showing an injured soldier being attended to. ┬áThe tag on the soldier indicates that he’s been processed by someone with medical authority already. ┬áBecause his hand is over his eyes, and the soldier (presumably comrade) looking on has his gas mask bag strung in a ready position around his neck suggests the wounded soldier may have suffered the effects of gas in addition to the leg injury the other medical officer is working on.
