Photo was taken before 17 August 1915 (mailed) in 7. landwehr Division sector (Cernay to Altkirch in Alsace). Can't be sure even on the original if it is made out of sheets of metal-- NOT apparently one plate. Wood wouyldn't make much sense, since the peeking slit wouldn't do much good with a board for cover! speechless1.gif The item which appears to be a wine bottle with "neck" is actually a "pineapple" grenade of some sort, and the play of light is some sort of paper (?) covering the wuzzit.

Maybe it IS wooden, and just to obscure anyone standing there rather than real protection.
