A scene on a sloping lawn before a large house with a dutch gable. Two soldiers, one with a crutch, sit on the bank in the left foreground, a nurse helps another down some steps at centre middleground and a lone figure on crutches walks beneath an overarching willow tree in the distance on the right.

Hartrick, and other artists, illustrating The Great War: Britain's Efforts and Ideals, have been received from the Ministry of Information, under whose auspices these splendid lithographs were made.'
