Communication Trench, Camp Barriefield, Ontario, October 1916
This communication trench (leading from the rear to the forward part of the Front) is a training trench built at the military camp in Barriefield, Ontario. This trench is very clean, with wooden walkways and lockers to store weapons. Very few soldiers ever saw trenches in such a pristine condition on the battlefield.
