  • Figure 1.3. This image represents the moment of armistice, recording artillery activity with a “sound ranger” (an apparatus invented in World War I to measure enemy artillery positions). It shows the cessation of fire in the flattening of white lines, which, before 11:00 a.m., oscillated with the noise. Imperial War Museum, London, American Embassy Collection, Q 47886.
