T/4 Walter E. Cummings was a combat cameraman with the 166th Signal Photo Corps. He was a friend of mine and he passed away in 2011. I recently was given access to the photos he had in a memory book and I wanted to share them with members of the site. He was with the 166th from about July 27th 1944 to the end of the war and was in Detachment #5 of the 166th and was assigned to 4th Armored. Much of the motion pictures on the 4th Armored was shot by him and he was the photographer that took the photo of "Cobra King" in Assenois Belgium/Bastogne. His friends knew him as William or Bill Cummings.
I'll start with one of the earliest photos I have of him in Ireland before they landed in France. He was a ladies man and a dancer prior to the war and this kept him in shape and led to his post war work. As with others in the 166th, like Russ Meyer and William Teas, he was quick to get the ladies on camera.
