Description

Two soldiers of the 20th Battalion in a trench at Gallipoli. The soldier at left is using a periscope rifle, his legs on either side of a soldier sleeping in the trench, while the soldier at right, seated on a sandbag, is wearing a hessian sand bag on his head as a form of camouflage. (One of a series of photographs in the collection of 4414 Lance Corporal Thomas Sydney Harrison.)
