Concentration Camp Liberation Photos

I bought these photos from the estate of an artist/photographer in the John Deere Battalion. I do not know if they have ever been published.

3rd Armored Division Photos

An album of photos taken by Sergeant Walter Schreck of the 36th Combat Infantry Battalion, 3rd Armored Division. Schreck saw a lot of action with this distinguished unit that fought its way through France, Belgium and Germany. And he snapped a lot of photos, too.

292nd Engineers Combat Battalion Photos

An album of photos taken in Belgium and Germany by Sergeant James M. "Meredith" Longacre of the 292nd Engineers Combat Battalion. His unit was responsible for building bridges, sweeping for mines and maintaining supply routes for the advancing infantry divisions. Meredith was assigned as a photographer, taking aerial reconnaissance photos of bridges to be built and enemy bridges to be destroyed. He also photographed work in progress.

Deal in Flags

This humerous article was taken from the book "Jungle Warfare - with the Australian Army in the South-West Pacific", published in Sydney Australia in 1944. Collectors of WW2 Japanese Memorabilia will find this just as fresh as the day it was written.

Two more neat USMC photos from the same estate.
