1st Battalion, the Cheshire Regiment, in rear areas of the Western Front, autumn 1917.
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.
