'Bill Palmer really needed a respirator', North Africa, 1943 (c).

From a photograph album compiled by Major W H J Sale, MC, 3rd/4th County of London Yeomanry (Sharpshooters), World War Two, North Africa.

The caption to this photograph makes it clear that the subject's feet were in need of attention. In the desert natural water supplies were almost non-existent. Water had to be transported in. Half of each man's 4.5 litre (a gallon) water ration went for cooking and topping up the radiators of vehicles. Men had to therefore ration what was left for drinking and washing so feet were not always a priority!
