Stretcher-bearer treating a wounded soldier, Menin, Belgium, during World War I. This image shows a stretcher-bearer leaning over a wounded man. According to the original caption the wounded man is a sergeant with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders. He is lying in a trench or a muddy hole in the ground. His bandaged head has been placed on top of a bag or pack, in an attempt to make him more comfortable. The stretcher-bearer is either checking him for further wounds or patching up another one. The surrounding conditions are far from ideal for treating a wounded man.
