Description

Australians breaking the ice to draw water rations outside their dugout at Mametz Circus, in France, in January 1917. The two men in the foreground are wearing beanies to ward off the cold from the heavy snow fall and the one in the background, smoking a cigarette, appears to be wearing a scarf wrapped around his head.
