King George V is standing with a group of officers one of whom is wearing German armour. A car and chauffeur is silhouetted behind the group and is parked on a square of duckboards. Royal visits were important public relations exercises; and allowed the soldiers a certain sense of pride.
Original reads:, ‘OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN ON THE BRITISH WESTERN FRONT. An officer puts on a German armour for H.M.’s inspection.’
