Members of the 2nd Australian Division, and possibly the 17th Battalion, in the trenches in the Bois Grenier sector. The soldier in the foreground is looking through a periscope; the man to his left is holding a Lewis gun. The soldier standing highest in the image, holding a rifle, is believed to be 2270 Private James Josiah Agnew, 17th Battalion. The 17th Battalion entered the Bois Grenier sector on 3 June 1916, and Charles Bean's diary records this image as being staged by Brooks.
