Pictures of World War I

Scene in an Advanced Dressing Station During a Battle

This looks like another photo taken of the dressing station at Hill 60.  However, I may be mistaken.  Frank Hurley (1885-1961) took several pictures that look quite similar.  What interesting to notice is just how many people are packed into these small areas.  But if you look close, you’ll see a lot going on.  There’s a soldier attending to an injured infantry man.  The soldier front and center appears dazed or lost in deep thought.  The two soldiers front and to the left are presumably scribbling away at letters to loved ones, while the eeriest of all, is the soldier to the right who looks uninjured physically…. but his facial expression says it all.
