Photograph of two doctors going forward with their orderlies, [ca 1917]

Reference Number: MS-Papers-5553-5-066

Photograph number three in manuscript. `This is an amusing photo really; Major-General Swinton wrote in his book, Vol. 2, "Two doctors going forward with their orderlies, it was quiet at that time." Who are the two Y.M.C.A boys, or Sgt. Guthrie M.M. M.I.D. and Corp. Coben M.M., as orderlies, which of the two are orderlies? Us four have our Army Corps arm bands on. The photo was taken by Paris - he was attached to me for quite a time. We were doing a road reconnaissance; from right to left, me, Lieut. Williams, two Y.M.C.A orderlies, Sgt. Guthrie M.M M.I.D., Corp Coben M.M. We did have Lieut. Stevens and his batman with us but Stevens was killed 20 minutes before this photo was taken. There are shells flying overhead whilst we are sitting there. Note the foliage in the foreground - green and fresh. The forest was like that the day before. You can see Fritz's trenches quite plain. We sent Stevens back with his batman and Steven's mascot, Mickey...'
