Mostly Uninvited 749

AlisonSye739

Field Marshall Sir Douglas Haig, by William Orpen, 1917 (IWM Art 324).

Commander during the Battle Of The Somme, and member of the Bullingdon Club.

1,200,00 lives were lost at the Somme.  Not Douglas’, though.

Taken from a 2014 NPG leaflet for The Great War In Portraits, picked from a bin.
