I’m guessing it’s the invasion of Russia ?

Made by Louis Raemeakers, and the image was used on a cigarette-card by Black Cat Cigarettes:

" In 1914 Black Cat cigarettes offered smokers a chance to collect small cardboard flags of the Allies and in 1916 the first set of cigarette cards was included in the packs. This was a set of 140 war cartoons by Louis Raemaekers which could fetch a considerable price at auction today. The next series of cards quickly followed, featuring Women on War Work. "
