Muirhead Bone was appointed as one of Britain’s first official war artist in May 1916. His small black and white drawings were widely reproduced in war-time government-funded publications.
Lieut. Col. J.Y. Campbell won his VC blowing his hunting horn to rally his guardsmen, (his horn is tucked into his tunic in this drawing).
