Sterilising water stage 1, France, during World War I. A soldier is standing on a bridge in a town. He is leaning over an iron railing to lower two hosepipes into the river below. Each hose has a bucket on the end which would hold it in the water but stop the pipe becoming clogged in mud. A lorry stands in the street behind.
When the Germans retreated from towns and villages, they often deliberately poisoned the water supplies. Clean drinking water was a constant problem with such large armies concentrated in a small area.
