A number of men in khaki taking a rest in a quiet corner of Holy Trinity Church, Trinity Street, Hastings. It is unclear what regiment they serve in.
The original image is from the Hastings & St Leonards Pictorial Advertiser date 12th April 1917.
The two photographs used to create the image, and the final combined image are below. You can view the top image full size on my Flickr page by clicking on it.
This image is part of a continuing series of Then and Now images I’ve created for East Sussex Council’s World War 1 commemoration website. The website is focused on the contribution that the men and women of East Sussex made towards the war effort.
