English: Some soldiers are jammed in the brick door way of a dugout while one man stands outside smoking. The two clearly visible soldiers look cocky and are wearing big grins. The dugout itself is half derelict with the structure clearly showing. The ground is very muddy and uneven. It is littered with equipment and debris. There is a sign leaning up against the wall which says 'ye corner house'.

Photographs such as these were often used as positive propaganda. This particular picture illustrates the sense of humour which World War I was famed for.
