Field Hospital in Tirah

This illustration was taken from the 'The Graphic'. It shows the 42nd Native Field Hospital. These were fairly basic but the bales of straw hint at the long range sniping that was feasible from the mountains around it. At night, or during attack, a modicum of protection would be possible in the tent protected by these bales.
