British Artillery in battle

Seems an appropriate time to upload this photo. I scanned it from a copy of the Berlin Illustrated Magazine dated November 1914. It shows my grandfathers artillery regiment under fire in Germany 100 years ago. He is to the right of the photo with the arrow pointing down to him. The arrow and margin text were added by a comrade in arms and the magazine sent on to him later.

Comments:
Hi there,without offence or sounding being pedantic, it would be nice to rename this photo as 'British Artillery in Action", as there were also Scottish, Welsh and Irish involved in the war, not to mention Colonial Forces.

[Good point, now changed- Steven]
