A shell shocked soldier in the trenches during World War One. "I don't know why, but I find this image strangely beautiful. Grievous, but beautiful. I am not sure of the photographer of this piece or the name of the soldier in the photo. I do know that it is the cover image of the book "Broken Men: Shell Shock, Treatment and Recovery in Britain, 1914-30," written by Fiona Reid. If anyone knows the photographer's name, I would appreciate it very much."~Sethaka.
Mutt was a YMCA cigarette delivery dog during WWI. These dogs delivered cigarettes and even provided psychological comfort, even just for a fleeting moment, to the soldiers out on the field. They were known to boost moral. Mutt was injured twice during WWI. Quite often, mascots such as Mutt were left behind when conflict was over but it is said that Mutt was smuggled on board and returned safely to New York.
