Depicts a humorous caricature of soldier tramping through mud on the Western Front and dripping with rainwater. Dyson drew this sketch in France and gave it to J. C. Dunningham. Will Dyson was the first Australian artist to visit the front during the First World War, travelling to France in December 1916, remaining there until May 1917, making records of the Australian involvement in the war. Dyson was appointed an Official War Artist, attached to the AIF, in May 1917, working in France and London throughout the war. His commission was terminated in March 1920.
