A uniformed soldier in shades of olive green faces his proper left and holds a bayonetted gun in his proper right hand. He stands on a brown hill or mound and behind him is a damaged but upright, flying French flag, with the words "Honneur et Patrie" on the flag. Behind the flag is a large cloud and sun rays.
