Four officers are crouched next to a structure made of wood and chicken wire. According to the original caption, it forms part of a concealed communications trench – long branches are being used to camouflage it. The men are all in uniform and wearing steel helmets. Communication trenches were built to link the front line with support and reserve trenches. Appropriately named, they enabled communication between the trenches and allowed the free movement of men, weapons and supplies.
