Artist Cyril Barraud depicts Highlanders carrying a wounded man off the battlefield. The shoulder patch, a light blue rectangle and dark blue circle, identify them as members of the 43rd Battalion. One soldier wears a red cross armband identifying him as medical personnel. Those who were hurt but still able to walk were called "walking wounded," like the two soldiers behind the stretcher party.
