I found this photo in a bunch of emails my brother-in-law forwards over to me. It was part of a power point slide presentation. I have no clue what that presentation was for but it has some very eerie music played on a tin whistle, and begins with a photo of the Russian Army, the last Tsar of Russia, his wife, and son. There must be 50 old photos in the presentation so you all are in for some more from that collection. The photos are from around the early 1900's to the 1940's.
This photo looks like it is a soldier walking through a field. It seems there are two other soldiers in the background, one with a gun. But why is this soldier carrying this donkey? Shouldn't it be the other way around? At the very least that donkey should be carrying some of those soldiers supplies.
I originally published this photo in a post on March 10, 2010. At that time I asked readers what their thoughts were on the situation. It was one of our most commented posts. Here are some of the replies:
