|Description||This cartoon, by Able Seaman J.S. Sharp, Howe Battalion, Royal Naval Division, is a play on traditional songs, like 'Ten green bottles standing on a wall'. As the narrative progresses a soldier is lost each time, with the text on the left matching the picture on the right and vice versa. The incidents which befall each soldier range from the light-hearted, getting drunk, to the much more serious, being hit by a German shell. Despite this they are all treated in the same fashion, and most aspects of the ordinary soldiers' war experience are covered. The piece ends with a soldier fainting on seeing a billboard announcing that the war is over. The comments, however, do go a little deeper. The number of soldiers here, are continually being reduced, without any signs of replacements. Another aspect of this is the group of ten. Characteristically, friends, families and villages, tended to sign on together and so were placed together. As a result, when tragedies happened, whole communities were wiped out at once.
