In a letter to Ernest Blakley of the Imperial War Museum on 2 October 1934, Kennington describes the background for the work: 'The picture was painted at home from drawings made in 55 C.C.S. (Casualty Clearing Station) in Tincourt near Peronne during the bombardment that preceeded the 1918 German offensive.' (IWM War Archive: IWM 245(B)/6 Part 3)
