'Division de Lahore - 1914-1915. Interprètes', 1915 (c)

Pencil drawing by Paul Sarrut (1882-1969), 1915 (c).

Portraits of British and French interpreters attached to the Lahore Division (1914-1915). It is possible that the figure in the top left corner is a self-portrait.

Paul Sarrut served in the French Army during World War One (1914-1918) and was posted to the British Army as a Military Liaison Officer and interpreter for the French, Indian and British troops on the Western Front.

After the War, Sarrut had a selection of his drawings engraved and issued as a portfolio, 'British and Indian Troops in Northern France, 70 War Sketches, 1914-1915', published by H Delépine of Arras, France, in about 1920. This is the original sketch for one of those prints.
