Photograph of open-fronted ambulance wagons full of wounded soldiers. World War I era.

From a photograph album created by Sergeant John Lord and documents his time in Egypt. The album was created in a lined notebook/diary type book and John Lord completely filled the album with photographs. All of the photographs are numbered and in pencil he has written captions around many of the photographs. A few of the early photographs are dated 1915. Many of the photographs depict camps, local people, street scenes, fellow soldiers at rest, horses, ambulances, hospitals and camels.
