    About Brooks: "Ernest Brooks (23 February 1878 — after 1936) was a British photographer, best known for his war photography from the First World War. He was the first official photographer to be appointed by the British military, and produced several thousand images between 1915 and 1918, more than a tenth of all British official photographs taken during the war."

    Art Siegel: This photo does indeed seem to be a cropped version of the one in the Imperial War Museum. Thanks for making the connection and providing the name of the photographer as well as a more specific date. We'll add the information when we next update the record.
