A drummer boy turning his head to his left peers from under his large helmet as he beats the signal to attack. The drumsticks are replacements – in 2007 they were wooden. He protects his companion, the young bugler slumped, his head thrown back, eyes closed in death, his bugle abandoned on the ground.
