I bought a WW2 photo album over the weekend. It has 92 3x4.5" photos in it. Most (52) are by or of a sailor on a LCT in the South Pacific. There are 40 photos which appear to be copy photos or perhaps photos purchased by the sailor. Those 40 cover such things as pictures of amphibious assults, dead Japanese soldiers, Japanese POW's, signs erected by soldiers, native scenes, and a few topless Hawaiian girls. The picture I am posting here is one of the copy photos. None of the photos have any writing on them, but from images of the LCT's I believe the sailor was part of floatilla 23, group 68 which made that remarkable sea journey from Hawaii to the Phillipines in their LCT's in early 1945. I am still researching the LCT part of the album but thought this photo was worth posting.

I think those are Dodge WC-37s. Too big for G-503 jeeps. Likely Weapon Carriers. ( WC).
