The Flower Book

  • Stand To Before Dawn, c.1918, by John Nash.; The British war artist John Nash served with the Artists Rifles on the Western Front. This drawing depicts men at stand to, one of the key events in the daily routine of the front line. Infantry manned the front line in anticipation of a possible enemy attack or raid. Whilst this was a routine associated with the possibility of such activity in the murky light conditions of dawn and dusk, it also became one of discipline and alertness.
