Pulling a horse out of a ditch, close to Reutel, Belgium. This picture displays a quantity of uniformed males attempting to pull a horse out of a ditch. They have put a strap spherical the horse and are making an attempt to dig it out. A puppy and a few other men watch the whole operation cautiously. There are a number of autos noticeable in the length, travelling along the street parallel to the ditch.
This distinct rescue seems to be rather straightforward. In many circumstances, nevertheless, the rain and mud at the Front turned the landscape into a risky sea of mud which, merged with ditches and shell holes, could prove to be deadly.
