Two American Expeditionary Forces (AEF) soldiers in a deep trench clean their rifles. Snow on the ground.The trench is lined with woven tree limbs and twigs, and even include "benches" for sitting. A third soldier appears with gas attack warning. The soldiers don their gas masks. Others appear wearing gas masks. All take firing positions in the trench, as gas drifts over them. A soldier without a mask stumbles into the trench. One of the soldiers places a gas mask over his face. Another goes down the trench and fetches medics who attend to the victim. The medics carry the gassed soldier on a stretcher into a gas proof dugout. (World War I; World War 1; WWI; WW1)
