Percy returned along with the 13th and the 15th Brigades that had been using his gun. Gordon Brown, this time, was left behind, but only for twenty-four hours, to clean up “huts, stables, kitchen etc.” (1)

(1) Brown, Robert Gordon. Letter to his mother, January  20, 1917. Available from the Canadian Letters and Images Project.

The post card is a compilation of various photographs by T.L. Fuller. Though undated, it looks as if at least some of the photographs — of the shirtsleeved cooks, for instance — were taken in balmier days than those Percy had known on the windswept plains. This card is another of the images in the Google Album Archive of the Durrington and Larkhill Camps.
