  • Short Summary

    Black and white soldiers carry boxes of ammunition between piles of shells.

  • Description

    Munition Dump.

    Location of events unknown.

    Soldiers carrying things between rows of stacked up shells. Partial racial integration: both black and white soldiers working though not ever in pairs - that is; 2 black guys carry a heavy box together; or 2 white.

    The men are wearing British uniforms; so these black guys are either British citizens or else from an African colony and haven't got their own style uniform like some of the others.

    Colonialism; imperialism; weapons. World War one; military.
