'At dawn, in a determined rush, we carry the fortified Hun entrenchments in Trones Wood by assault', 1916.

Stereoscopic photograph, World War One, Western Front (1914-1918), 1916.

The Allies hoped to capture Trones Wood, located to the south east of Longueval, during the opening phase of the Somme offensive. The attack on the wood began on 8 July 1916, but it was not until 14-15 July that the British 14th and 18th Divisions succeeded in taking it after a protracted fight. Their eventual success allowed the 9th Division to push on to Longueval itself.

One of 100 stereoscopic photographs associated with World War One.
