WW1 - French arrest a decrepit old woman (a German spy)

WW1 - The Germans gave the old woman a new white blanket and bribed her to walk behind any French battery that might take up a position near a certain village on the Aisne. The lady in the blanket would take an interest in the French from behind their positions on higher ground. As she left, the French were immediately shelled by the German gunners. The woman was captured and brought before a military tribunal, which found her guilt of espionage and sentenced her to life imprisonment. Date: 1915

A football match played by troops during the battle of the A

"Our Happy Tommies" A typical upbeat choice of subject for The Illustrated Sporting and Dramatic News, Sutcliffes illustration, records a football match played by troops in a French village place somewhere along the British second line during the battle of the Aisne. The caption reminds the reader that many footballs have been sent to France for use in the ranks. The picture, as well as the title, conveys a positive image of trench life and would have given comfort to those at home to know that their men occasionally had fun. But football also embodied the British spirit of fair play, a symbolism that also found credence on the battlefield. Date: 1914
