Men carrying a dead body on a stretcher through muddy ground towards a horse and carriage.

Stretcher bearers bring out wounded of the 4th Division from the front line near Delville Wood, Longueval, in December 1916. Often the wounded from the winter trenches had to be carried by teams of stretcher bearers over long distances in appalling conditions. Many died before reaching vital attention. (AWM E00049)
