Two military police dogs and their handler, during World War I. Two dogs are straining to escape this soldier. He is alone down the front of the field and silhouetted against the hill in the background. He seems to be tense and almost grimacing, probably because these cute and lively dogs are causing him so many problems.

Trained dogs were used by most of the European armed forces at this time. They fulfilled a variety of functions, but were mainly used as messengers, sentries, decoys and ambulance dogs.

[Original reads: ‘INSPECTION OF THE GUARDS BY THE DUKE OF CONNAUGHT. Military Police had their work cut out to keep the dogs off the parade ground.’]
