Pretty interesting studio portrait I found in a footlocker belonging to a WWII African American cook. Not sure why he has an M1942 jump jacket and no idea when or where this picture was taken but I know he spent the end of the war in Germany and Belgium.


Always interested in purchasing ‘Saving Private Ryan’ movie props and wardrobe as well as other WWII movie memorabilia.

Really interesting. I've looked at this a couple times today thinking about it. I almost wonder if he arrived at studio for pic, wanted a pic in a field jacket, and the photographer had this jump jacket on hand. I can guarantee you that in the book 'Green Devils', those FJ troopers are all wearing the same gear, smock, helmet, and same sub-gun. Studios, going back to the Civil War, had 'gear' for the subject in the photo. My .02
