Car being towed, France, during World War I. This image shows a car being towed through thick mud. As the car in front tries to pull the other free, a soldier lends a hand by pulling on the tow rope. A group of soldiers standing next to the immovable car add their weight to the struggle. There appears to be a camp directly behind the road they are on. The car in front has the number 'M25446' painted on the bonnet.
Extreme weather conditions, and the floods and mud that ensued, created tremendous problems and hazards for the soldiers at the Front.
