'Tommy's Xmas Dinner', 1917

Pen and ink drawing from an album of drawings by S Mason-Springgay, East Kent Yeomanry, 1917.

This sketch depicts a disgruntled British soldier stuck in a trench with only bully (corned) beef and army biscuit for his Christmas meal. The notoriously hard biscuits could crack teeth if not first soaked in tea or water.
