Steps in the Arras tunnels

Steps in the Arras tunnels

This image shows the steps leading up to No. 10 exit from the caverns beneath the town of Arras in France, which were dug by New Zealand tunnellers during the First World War. Discarded helmets can be seen on the steps. This exit was intended to open up into no-man's land to allow troops to attack during the April 1917 offensive.
