Early Trench in Front Lines

You can’t get much clearer than this.   This is a trench on the Front Lines.  You can  tell by the simple and poor construction of the trench that it’s likely before the stalemate phase of the war set it.  Trench systems became extremely elaborate construction with levels, offices, wings, etc.  Here there’s really not much more than a pit or ditch in the ground with little supports. Picture taken by Frank Hurley (1885-1962).
