Description

Depicts three soldiers setting up camp at Reninghelst, Belgium. One man leans against the wooden wagon which contains their supplies, while another stands in the wagon presumably unpacking things. A white tent is pitched to the left and a man sits on a blue mat in front of it. In the background are four trees and some shrubbery and a blue sky with clouds.
