Cooks of the 2nd Battalion preparing bully beef rissoles for the evening meal at Ypres. With the aid of the mincer, the eternal 'bully' was turned into a variety of dishes. Identified are: Lance Corporal D McPherson (left foreground), cutting what appears to be bacon; R Egan (checking the contents in the field cooker or mobile kitchen, behind McPherson); Private (Pte) Kerwin (right foreground) working the mincer (this man has also been identified as Pte Hamilton MM); Pte R W Boyce (extreme right background, cigarette in mouth); Pte Suppel (on the other side of the field cooker). There is a limber behind Pte Boyce. Beside McPherson there are tins of bully beef. The soldier in the centre foreground with the minced bully beef is carrying his gas mask over his shoulder.
