Note the frost on the trees
Image by National Library of Scotland
Army carts, Western Front, during World War I. Horse-drawn army carts being driven down a road on a frosty day. The frost and ice would have presented problems with all forms of transport, although at times it must have been a welcome change from the endless mud.

Vera Brittain, who worked as a VAD in France during the winter of 1917 remembered the cold, ‘By the middle of December our kettles and hot-water bottles and sponges were all frozen hard when we came off duty .. getting up to go on duty in the icy darkness was a shuddering misery .. All the taps froze; water for the patients had to be cut down to a minimum.’

[Original reads: 'Note the frost on the trees.']
