That’s Tired

This image came from the Imperial War Museum. Image file number IWM Q 7014.

The unforgettable photograph is of stretcher-bearers of the 6th Battalion, Seaforth Highlanders asleep, near Roeux, on the 29th of August 1918.

Stretcher-bearers risked their lives to rescue their comrades, working hard for days without sleep to bring the wounded to safety.

One of the most decorated people of WW1, was Lance Corporal William Harold Coltman, VC, DCM & Bar, MM & Bar (17 November 1891 – 29 June 1974), who was a British stretcher-bearer.
