A "Fag" After a Fight
Description(Color) This card is an "official photograph," with the Crown Copyright reserved. It seems to be one of several "'Daily Mail' Battle Pictures."

"Passed by Censor" is printed in the top left corner of the reverse side.
This collection previously belonged to Dominic Hibberd, an English biographer most noted for the biographies of Wilfred Owen and Harold Monro, World War I poets. He collected these postcards for research purposes.
