Near Bois de l'Abbe, France. 27 May 1918. Gassed Australian soldiers lying out in the open at an over crowded aid post near Bois l’Abbé. They have been gassed in the operations in front of Villers-Bretonneux. (Note by Sergeant A. Brooksbank, Gas NCO, 10th Australian Infantry Brigade: Examples of what should not be done. Casualties should have removed contaminated garments. Lying on the ground with contaminated clothes and not wearing respirators means that they are inhaling quantities of vapour and adding to their injuries).
