    • This illustration by Fortunino Matania first appeared in a British newspaper called The Sphere in May 1917.

      The soldiers in the picture look as if they have been working hard to move this gun. Can you imagine what it would have been like to drag this through No Man's Land - the stretch of land between the two opposing sides?

      Things to think about...
      • Why might the British have needed to capture a German gun? Do you think it might be for strategic and tactical reasons or something else?
