This 'all action' photograph is thought to be the work of John Warwick Brooke. This image lacks the organisation and sanitisation of most other propaganda photographs, suggesting that it may not have been staged. Captain S.J. Worsley, described his experience of raiding during the Delville Wood Campaign, 'It was soon apparent that something very unpleasant was about to happen, so we stood to arms, groused a good deal, and waited. The waiting was always the hardest part of it all. The hours till 6 a.m. seemed terribly long.' [Original reads: 'OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPH TAKEN OF THE BRITISH WESTERN FRONT. A raiding party waiting for the word to go.'].
