This striking image shows the Manchester Regiment marching up a road through heavily wooded countryside. The men are being led by the Regimental Band. Five officers on horseback are watching them pass. One of the officers is reassuring his horse, another is holding the Regimental colours. On the other side of the road horse wagons are travelling in the opposite direction.

Wilfred Owen, the World War I poet, was a lieutenant in the Manchester Regiment. This gallant but futile display on the way to the Front seems in keeping with many of his poems.
