Referring to England's involvement in the escalating Franco-Prussian war, this illustration depicts a scene outside a 'Hospital Stores' on a battlefield. Britannia is represented as a nurse who holds the hand of a wounded French soldier in one hand, and with the other, hands a bottle of medicine to a Prussian troop. The caption explains that 'At least we may help the sick and wounded'.
