All but one have WW1 style helmets and rifles with fixed bayonets and have a bag slung in front of their chests, presumably for a gas mask; the odd man has a tee shirt but no shirt but is otherwise dress like the others. The men are numbered in ink. At least two men have cartridge belts. Most of the rifles are facing the camera so that only the sling is easily seen but one is in profile and appears to be a M1917 Enfield. ]
