Dr. Arthur Doughty, second from left, and Major Gustave Lanctôt, right, at Soissons, France, Sept. 6, 1916
Doughty and Lanctôt pose for this photograph as they survey the ruins of the French town of Soissons in the region of Picardie. From field expeditions, like this one, the Dominion Archivist and his assistant, Lanctôt, acquired hundreds of War trophies to be displayed and later distributed across Canada.
