During World War I (1914–18), Brussels was an occupied city, but the German troops did not inflict much damage. The illustrator, William Cecil Dunford (1885-1969), spent 1916 through 1918 with the YMCA and with the Australian Forces’ Historical Record Department. In 1920, he illustrated a book written by Henry Arthur Foley titled “Three Years on Active Service and Eight Months as a Prisoner-of-War.” This slide is part of a series depicting Australian Y.M.C.A. war work during World War I.
