French Anti-Aircraft Gun on the Western Front
French Anti-Aircraft Gun on the Western Front 
 

This is a picture of an ordinary French anti-aircraft gun sited in a trench on the Western Front. The humour is in the notice attached to the gun.

It reads in French:

"Tirs contre avions Appareil Grasset

"Fire against aircraft - Grasset device"

The instruction appears quite obvious to anyone seeing the gun.
