Prisoner of War camp Amagne 1915

Nothing on reverse. Amagne France, 21 November 1915. A Landsturm Unteroffizier armed with an obsolete Gewehr 71 ensures there's no funny business during a card game being played by French prisoners of war.

    What a bizarre set-up? Fancy dress, music, cards, comfortable surroundings, halo-like candle glow, benign guard. I wonder if the occupants of camps like Ruhleben would recognise such a scene?

    Looks like an E.B.#3 ersatz bayonet fixed to the rifle. Cool photo!
