Noël 1914 ''A la Belle Etoile' [Christmas 1914 at the Bright Star]
image: In a shallow trench, a sleeping French soldier in regulation blue greatcoat and red trousers. He lies facing the
viewer his head resting on his left arm, his right outstretched. His rifle, bayonet fixed leans upright against the trench. His boots are
placed upon the trench parapet, as are those of his comrades, three of whom slumber further along the trench to the right. The night sky
is hung with seven Croix de Guerre, all shining as brightly as the star of Bethlehem.
