This is the Original Sketch for a water colour in the collection of The National Army Museum showing Kelly's own Forward Observation Post Dugout at the Indian Village, Festubert, June 1915.


The Battle of Festubert (15–25 May 1915) was an attack by the British army in the Artois region of France on the western front during World War I. The offensive formed part of a series of attacks by the French Tenth Army and the British First Army in the Second Battle of Artois (3 May – 18 June 1915).


Talbot Kelly’s account of the FirstWorldWar is recorded in A Subaltern’s
Odyssey (1980).
