Motor drivers for the German Army wore leather tunics and pants to protect them from the weather. This driver has on a leather greatcoat for addition warmth in the winter months. On his belt he has a Model 1912 Map Case and Model 1909 Ammunition Pouches. Photographed by Max Höfele in München.
A group of British wounded with some hospital staff. There are two members of the Queen Alexandra Imperial Military Nursing Service(2nd row), one from the Voluntary Aid Detachment (3rd row left) and a Red Cross Nurse (3rd row right). This picture by Viner & Co., Bath.
Three sailors from the HMS New Zealand. An Indefatigable class battlecruiser, she was part of the Royal Navy's Grand Fleet. This card has a French back so this may have been taken when the ship visited Brest in February 1914.
The British Army entered Cologne in December 1918. These three images were taken at that time. The Royal Scots and the British Calvary marching through the city and finally the Calvary in formation outside of the Cologne Cathedral. The British Army of the Rhine was established in March 1919 and was headquartered in Cologne.
Some members of The Royal Warwickshire Regiment with a cat and small child somewhere in England. They could possibly be from the 2nd Battalion. Written on either side of the doors behind them is "Transport TRWR 2".
13 members of the The Prince of Wales's Own (West Yorkshire Regiment). The soldier on the far right was lucky or unlucky depending on how you look at it. He was wounded twice (unlucky) but is still fit for duty (lucky).
At the start of the war the Canadian Infantryman was equipped with the Ross Rifle. It did not do well in the trenches, frequently jamming because of the dirt and mud. By 1916 it was replaced in combat by the Lee-Enfield and used for training in Canada and England.
A Canadian soldier at the studio of Jos. Grenier of Montreal. Some of the flags in this group date this photo after October 1917. The United States entering the war on April 6, 1917. Cuba declared war the next day and Guatemala about two weeks later. Brazil, whose flag is barely visible in the upper left corner, declared war on Germany on October 26, 1917. The latest of all the countries represented here to join the Allies.
Here are two images of the same soldier taken with and without his Dienstmütze, or service cap. He amazingly held the exact same pose in both photos despite removing his cap and moving location. Even the wrinkles in his Bluse have not seemed to move.
Three members of the Canadian 8th Field Ambulance. Most likely taken between the end of the war and their return to Canada in April of 1919. I am stumped as to why the word L'Huile (the oil) is written on the back.
