Fascinating images, Mike. Love the Q&A, too.

Martin,

It's a good set -- you can see them all on the Tate website. My favourite is "bayonet practice". Kennington is an interesting artist, who covered both world wars.

The joke was passed on to me from my grandfather (dead the year before I was born) via my father.
