TAKING THE WOUNDED ON BOARD
men from the Somme ordered to England by the Medical Officer commanding the General or Stationary Hospital in which
each man has been a patient, are being put on board a hospital ship at the base. In the centre of the foreground
is seen the timber framework of the ship's large red cross of electric lights. With this, and the tier of some
sixty green lights running from stem to stern, a hospital ship at night is a beautiful as well as an unmistakable
object at sea.
