    French troops capture wooden guns on the Somme.

  • Description

    Wooden guns.

    World War One. French troops capture wooden guns on the Somme. It is not clear if they are actually real guns made of wood or if they are fake guns; put there by the Germans to confuse the Allies; or to make it seem that they had greater fire power than they actually did. The French soldier walks around the wooden gun; looks into it; walks around it some more; examining it.
