A dusty road runs diagonally across the picture,in the background fields with deep crops and copses of lush trees can be seen framing the horizon. On the road two donkeys wearing quite light tack and saddles are hitched up to a small carriage which is double-axled and made of covered boxes that bear Red Cross symbols.

Original reads: ‘OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN ON THE BRITISH WESTERN FRONT. Portuguese Red Cross limbers.’
