Conté crayon drawing, signed lower left 'P Sarrut', and dated upper left, '17-1-1915', by Paul Sarrut (1882-1969), 1915.

This sketch shows three wounded sepoys waiting to be treated by the 111th Indian Field Ambulance Unit at Lozinghem in Pas-de-Calais, France. Drawn on the Western Front; some of Sarrut's work was published in a portfolio of 70 lithographs entitled 'British and Indian Troops in Northern France', published by H Delepine, Arras, 1920 (c).

Camille Georges Paul Sarrut was born in Grenoble in May 1882. He was an artist and engraver who studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Français from 1909, under the name Paul Sarrut. Having undertaken national service in 1903, he rejoined the French Army in 1914 as a corporal and served during the First World War (1914-1918). That same year he was posted to the British Army as a Military Liaison Officer and interpreter for the French, Indian and British troops on the Western Front. The National Army Museum holds a large collection of original sketches that Sarrut drew during the war, many of which he published in this set of lithographs in about 1920.
