Cover of "First Day"

Recommended Posts

Within the past few weeks I recall seeing an image of the cover of Middlebrook's "First Day On the Somme" (Penguin edition) that identified the soldiers depicted. I thought it was here but it may have been another Great War site. I only joined here early this month but an extensive search has produced nothing.

If its the same cover as the original hardback edition the picture used was a 'still 'from the Somme film and it is a group of Royal Warwicks at rest eating from their mess tins (2nd Bn I think)

The latest edition has the famous IWM photograph of a soldier carrying a casualty out of a trench.

Thank you, gents. Stiletto's 14 Feb posting is the same photo on the cover of the Penguin edition.
