This end of  WW1 scene may be set at the Belgian Front, the hills being typical of the Ardennes. Visible to the left is way-side figure of Christ on the Cross.  A similar  subject, where women attend to battle-weary soldiers, irrespective of their nationality, was portrayed by Charles Sargeant Jagger at the  Anglo-Belgian War Memorial in Brussels.
