Gifts from Germans following the Christmas truce, WW1
British non-commissioned officers pose with gifts and souvenirs given to them by Germans after the informal truce which took place at certain points along the Western Front in December 1914. They display a German song book, Pickelhaube helmets, a cap and, ironically, a rifle and bayonet.
