The squadron, urging its fellow tanks forward is particularly reminiscent of a cavalry charge. Snaffles time in his regiment as Gunner in the Royal Garrison Artillery before the First World War gave him an insight and an acute understanding of The Armed Forces. This allowed him to reflect upon his time within his pictures. This made them both extremely accurate and moving. In the early part of the war, Snaffles was an artist for "The Graphic", he sketched many scenes from the front in France before entering the Royal Naval Air Service as a Motor Mechanic in small coastal motorboats. Later he was commissioned as a Lieutenant RNVR and, joined the team under Norman Wilkinson engaged in designing camouflage for ships at sea, which involved trips in the Northern Patrol.
