Four Spanish officers visit captured German trenches, during World War I. The four men look as though they are moving slowly towards the camera, whilst peering down the steep drop into what the existing caption tells us is a captured German trench. The trench and the ground about it are strewn with the debris of war.

Entertainment of Allied Forces’ officers was important for fostering good relations.

Waiting their turn for tickets

Soldiers queuing for refreshments. The sign just on the edge of the photograph reads, ‘Tea and Sandwiches 30 cent. Pay Here.’ Behind the sign is a rather grimy tepee tent with its flap open. A trestle table has been set up in front of this. A soldier who has put on a white jacket over his uniform tunic, is standing behind the table holding tickets, possibly selling them to the uniformed men who are queuing at the table. A sergeant standing a little in front of the queue is looking at the camera, while the soldier in the foreground is looking at the men at the table.
