Flying Pig

Anzac soldiers (from New Zealand and Australia) are loading a trench mortar

The picture was made near Pozières, in France. It is part of a series of six postcards. The text on the backside of this one reads: "Tommy's nickname for a trench-mortar is 'flying pig' and this picture shows some of our men loading one of these useful weapons".
