Highland Territorials in a trench [La Gorgue, France], August I know these soldiers would have been very proud of their uniform, but a kilt just doesn’t seem like the most practical uniform to wear in a trench.

Italians wounded in the Isonzo River Valley, a mobile and much more lethal front compared to the mainly defensive mountain trench positions. Early successes by the Italians against the Austrians in the Isonzo were negated when German troops propped up the sagging Austrian Army and launched combined Austro-German attacks. 1916

November 1916 - End of the Ninth Battle of the Isonzo Pictured - Wounded Italian soldiers rest on stretchers in a triage center. Three days of battle in deep mud on the mountainside, then the Ninth Battle of the Isonzo was over.
