The original caption reads: Groupe de forestiers canadiens, sept hommes assis sur un tronc d'arbre: a group of Canadian forest rangers, seven men sitting on a tree-trunk.
The soldier on the right, with the pipe and the walking stick, appears to be a French soldier. This true color picture was probably taken in 1917 just behind the Western Front.
What are these foresters here for? What are they holding? A tool to cut branches? Here are some of the answers we received on these questions.
