Some cool Digital Camera images:
Group in the trenches

Soldiers in a trench, France, during World War I. A group of soldiers pose for the camera in a trench. All of them are wearing steel helmets and many of them are holding some form of weaponry. One man, third row back and third from the left, holds up a sign for ‘250 WILD WOODBINE CIGARETTES’. To the left we can just see what is possibly the entrance to a dugout. The landscape behind them is rather bleak.
