Best Answer

when men were in the trenches in world war one they had many jobs such as cleaning the toilets and getting supplies. They would also have had to repairing defences; mending and putting up barbed wire and refilling sand bags and putting them up around the outside of the trench, If they were on night duty then they would have to guard the trench or they would be sent on spying missions to find info on the enemy .
