Title: Print No. 152767, December 11, 1918 (This picture was taken during the suppression of the mutiny among Russian troops, who had refused to go to the front when ordered. Two companies, quartered in a large white building known as Alexandria Barracks, were given until two o'clock on the afternoon of December 11th to obey the order. Promptly at this time machine gun and rifle fire was directed against the building. British troops surrounded the building on three sides, while Headquarters Company, 339th Infantry held the fourth. In the distance, at the center of the picture can be seen the barracks with the smoke and dust of the trench mortar bomb bursting against the side. Archangel, Russia.) from the United States Army Signal Corps photograph collection, 1918-1919 [Folder 5, Item 8]
