Transcription"Rescuing the wounded from among the dead, battlefield scene, France. With the same thoughtfulness and precision with which an army goes over the plans for attack and defense, the injured are searched for and sent on their way to hospitals where their lives may be saved and their usefulness as citizens may be restored. The scene you are looking upon is one of the details in that vast work to which the medical corps of the French army attended through all the terrible battles that raged on their hills and plains. These French soldiers have improvised a stretcher out of a number of sticks and are carrying a fearfully mangled French soldier to the dressing station. He is one of those who just escaped the death that struck down the others you can see scattered over the plain. The rescuers have heaped all his equipment on the stretcher with him, his gas mask in its metal container, his knapsack and pack. In the distance more searchers can be seen doing the same work, sorting out the living and the dead and salvaging the human wreckage, that some of it might be made whole again. This is a typical 'after the battle' scene. The smoke has cleared and a friendly fog with a slight drizzle of rain is making the horizon indistinct"--Printed on back of stereograph.
