Some nice ones of the Gordons in the WW1 trench - for those wondering why there seems to be a lot of laughter going on around the chap on the stretcher, some unintended side-effects were discovered relating to what happens to the back of the kilt worn by the Stretcher Bearer at the front when the stretcher is lifted off the ground, and the consequent view shown to those standing nearby.... :twisted:

Excellent pictures!

I'm sorry to report that I was that stretcher bearer :shifty:
