This is a Signed Limited edition print.

One of a series of 12 artist proof signed prints about World War I produced for the Sphere & Tatler in 1916, 'With the British Army on the Western Front'. The officers are at tea. An orderly has just brought in a fresh brew and has placed the pot upon the table. "A half-cup, sir?" inquires the subaltern officer. "Thank you, yes."

Maps dangle over the edge of the table to make way for the jam pots, the sugar basin, the tea cups, and the bread and butter. Otherwise it is always maps, maps, maps everywhere! But now is the interlude of tea, and the steam from the cup mingles with the fragrant smell of good tobacco.

An occasional bullet may splinter the rafters and the concussion of a shell may rattle the tea cups, but the walls of the room are well sand-bagged up to a comfortable height, and the serenity of the moment is not disturbed.
