Tending German wounded | National Library of Scotland

Access this resource

A wounded German prisoner is being given something to drink and is resting on a stretcher with blankets and a pillow. Many such photographs were deliberately taken as propaganda for circulation to Neutral so presenting one side or the other as more humane.

Original reads: ‘OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN ON THE BRITISH WESTERN FRONT IN FRANCE. Tending German wounded.’
