A picture of a seventeen (17) year old Canadian soldier named Lawrence, from Brantford, Ontario, who had the bad luck of being wounded just 15 minutes before the armistice was declared. He is being tended to by several nurses in a hospital. Many teenagers served in the First World War 1, on both sides of the conflict. Seeing someone this young seriously wounded just 15 minutes before the declaration of peace drives home just how futile and wasteful this war really was.
