British trench near St Quentin

This photo comes from the history of the German Füsilier-Regiment 39, which took part in the attack on the British 30th Division opposite St Quentin. It shows the type of trenches dug by the British after taking over this sector from the French just before the Germans launched Operation Michael in March 1918. The label translates as ‘Lloyd George Trench’,
