This color postcard depicts a wounded nurse holding the French flag. The nurse stands behind two soldiers, one standing and the other kneeling on the ground. The nurse has been struck in the right arm by a passing bullet. She is wearing a long gray dress with white collar, cornette and armband. There is a red cross on the armband. She holds the French flag against her body with her left hand. One soldier, wearing a blue uniform and red cap is turned toward her, holding her arm and looking at the wound. The other solder, with red pants, blue tunic, boots and ornate helmet, kneels on the ground facing forward with his rifle. In the background is a building and a cannon.
