A dust scene on the Properinghe Road, on the way to Ypres, showing the 2nd Australian Divisional Ammunition Column moving forward, during the Third Battle of Ypres, when this road was enveloped day and night in thick grey clouds of dust, raised by the great stream of troops and traffic which never ceased for weeks on end. Note the man on the bicycle in the foreground.
