A line of British soldiers climbing up the embankment where, according to the original caption, the Moyenneville railway track had been removed by the Germans. Moyenneville was one of the small villages south of Arras and, by removing the rails and sleepers the Germans were delaying the immediate use of the line by the Allies to move troops and supplies. The telephone/telegraph wire also appear to have been cut and removed.
Original reads: ‘View of the railway track at Moyenneville. The Boche left neither line nor sleepers.’
The Battle of Arras 9th April to 16th May 1917
