At Dynamichrome we are marking the lead up to Remembrance Day by sharing a series of six photographs we have digitally reconstructed in colour for the Imperial War Museum London.
Officers of the 12th Royal Irish Rifles wading through the mud of a fallen in communication trench, the result of a thaw after weeks of snow and from Essigny, 7 February 1918. They had recently taken over from the French 6th Division.
