    The photo was taken of the Indian regiment in Fauquissart France 1915, by Charles Hilton DeWitt Girdwood.
    You are right about the way the gas mask should have been worn, but since they where fighting a war not everything is so straight forward, mistakes happen, equipment incorrectly used etc...

    If you follow the link Anon posted it shows where and when the photos where taken.

    Couple more I just found looking up info on gas hoods from the pic posted by Jerry, correction to a blog I believe these are termed Tirailleurs Senegalais and a rare colour pic of a mustard gas victim least we ever would forget the horror.

    Never quite understood the need to digitally colour a period sepia or monotone photograph.. IMO it adds nothing to the narrative of the captured moment in time. I prefer my period images to be period. The digitally coloured mono portrait images in the OP all share the same bland pink plastic doll skin hues and tones.
    I collect, therefore I am.

    Nothing in science can explain how consciousness arose from matter.

    Hi all, glad you like the pics- I colourised them all for the Open University so can verify they're all original period photos. You can see the 'before and after' shots at
    Thanks, Tom
