Stripped to the waist and sweated chest
Mid-day’s reprieve much needed rest.
We dug and hauled and lifted high
From trenches deep toward the sky –
Non-fighting troops and yet we die
extract from The Black Soldier’s Lament by George A. Borden
The Empire Needs Men Exhibition highlights the contribution of Africans to World War I.
