Warming up their camp lunches


Warming up their camp lunches



Date Created


This picture shows one of the Red Cross surgeons and two private soldiers, who have clubbed together for their noonday lunch and are just ready to start a small fire, by which to heat water for tea and rice. The photographer, ever on a still hunt for interesting groups, was graciously given the privilege of taking the group, and everyone of the three men came afterward to buy one or two copies to send home to japan to their dear ones as a souvenir of the war. This part of the camp was at the fort of Two Hundred and Three Meter Hill, Fist after the Japanese had succeeded in driving off the Russians, although they found it impossible to bring any guns to the top, which was completely dominated by the neighboring Russian forts on Chair Mountain and Table Mountain. In the background by the tent stands an officer of the regiment located here, who seems highly interested in the photographer's work.
