'A Boche prisoner, wounded and muddy, coming in on the 13th.' A British soldier helps a wounded German prisoner walk along a railway track. A man, possibly an official French war photographer is shown behind them, holding a camera and tripod. The derogatory term for a German, 'Boche� or 'Bosch�, originates from the French slang 'alboche�, which was two words 'Allemand� (German) and 'caboche� (pate, head) put together.
