EDITORS COMMENTS
Amidst the chaos and darkness of the battlefield during the First World War, a brave Army Chaplain, dressed in his surplice and vestments, conducts a night service for his weary and wounded soldiers. In this poignant moment, captured in a painting by A.C. Michael for the Illustrated London News' special panorama supplement, Great War Deeds, in 1915, the chaplain uses a packing case as an altar and a tin mug as a chalice. The dimly lit scene is illuminated by the flickering glow of candles and the faint light from bottles, creating an improvised yet sacred space for the soldiers to find solace and comfort. The chaplain's selfless act of faith and courage in the midst of the horrors of war underscores the resilience and bravery of the men and women who served during this pivotal time in history. The painting, a testament to the enduring power of religion and the human spirit, serves as a reminder of the heroic actions and sacrifices made by the clergy and soldiers during the First World War.
