_IMG01 presents the code of a photograph taken by James Francis (Frank) Hurley on the 29 October 1917. The picture shows five Australians, members of a field artillery brigade, passing along a duckboard track over mud and water among gaunt bare tree trunks in the devastated Chateau Wood, a portion of one of the battlegrounds in the Ypres salient. All the identified men in this group served in 4th Australian Division artillery units.
The last man in the group is unknown.
