  • Description

    World War One. German prisoners moved to the rear through communication trenches.

    Location of events unknown - looks like a hot climate.

    DS of row of German prisoners of war (POWs) moving single-file through the narrow trench, guards with guns move along with them. The captured Germans look a bit on the ragged side.

    Modified WPA record.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.
