Full description

The battalion marches past its senior officer (face not visible, possibly not the commanding officer) led by its band. Battalion rations are brought up in two-man containers and stew is shovelled from these into the men's mess tins. The men sit among flowers at the edge of a wood, talking and eating. A paper-seller makes his rounds among them. A portrait shot of Private T A Jones VC serving with the battalion.
