Soldiers collecting clover for horse feed, during World War I. Five soldiers and a reversed covered cart are in a field. The soldiers are not wearing all of their uniform, just their hats and an assortment of overalls, shirts and gloves. One of the soldiers is pitching a big pile of thick and matted clover into the back of the cart. Another soldier is standing on the tailgate waiting to help. Three others are standing in the field with their rakes buried in the clover. They are all looking at the camera. It is thought that John Warwick Brooke took this photograph.

Tommy is 'Tommy Atkins, a fictional hero figure representing the average British soldier. Horses were important mainly for transportation and therefore their supplies had to be seen to with equal diligence.

John Warwick Brooke, of the Topical Press Agency, was one of the first British official war photographers to be sent to the Western Front in 1916. They had to take as many photographs as possible, with as much variety as possible; a difficult task covering an army of over two million.

[Original reads: 'OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN ON THE BRITISH WESTERN FRONT. Tommies cutting and collecting clover for Horse Transport.']
