When the first soldier lit his cigarette, the enemy could see the light. When the second soldier lit-up from the same match, the enemy could take aim. When it was the third soldier's turn to light-up, the enemy would fire.
Welcome to my photography blog. I have a passion for black and white photography and many things old. My intension here is to showcase my great grandfathers collection of photographs, postcards, and clippings from WWI because they are beautiful and full of history. Take note that I am not a historian. The information I am providing connected to these images is either in my great grandfather's writing on the back of the picture or from a basic internet search.
