1 First World War postcard that consists of a white border on the bottom that reads, "Bystander copyright. / GOTT STRAFE THIS BARBED WIRE." The front shows a cartoon drawing of a bald soldier in uniform wearing a small white round cap tilted on his head. The soldier appears to be struggling with his trousers that have caught on a strand of barbed wire connected to wooden posts. A rifle with a strap is on the ground and lies partially on top of the soldiers right foot. The barren landscape shows a hill that is visible above the stuck soldier where two or three soldiers are standing with their rifles armed. The bottom right corner of the cartoon is signed, "Bruce Bairnsfather" in cursive.
The reverse consists of text at the top centre that reads, "POST CARD / The Address only to be here. / Printed in England." Above this it reads, "8-," hand written in pencil. Written vertically along the left hand side it reads, "'Bystander's' Fragments from France. Series 4." At the centre of the reverse written vertically it reads, "'Bystander' Copyright."
