Scene during the Battle of the Somme in northern France. Wounded British soldiers lie on stretchers near the village of Ginchy, waiting for evacuation by horse-drawn ambulance. In the background is the desolate bomb-blasted landscape with shattered trees. Two Irish volunteer divisions saw action during the Battle of the Somme. In September 1916 the 16th (Irish) Division was given the task of capturing the heavily defended villages of Ginchy and Guillemont. Photograph from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
