Photograph of a view of soldiers nailing coffins shut in France during World War I, ca.1916. Two plain wooden coffins can be seen, one at left and one at center. The one at left is open and its lid can be seen in the foreground near two wooden crosses. Uniformed soldiers can be seen putting nails into the lid of the coffin at center, while more soldiers stand around and watch. One soldier at right has a Red Cross emblem on his arm.
