29th division decorated soldier with homage patch

From my personal collection, 29th soldier decorated with the ph,ss,cib. I have the negative and under very high magnification you can see an invasion arrowhead on his ribbon rack. Also, he is wearing “The black watch of Canada  royal highland regiment” homage patch which is really neat. Wondering they must have fought side by side.

Interesting photo! Any idea what the ribbon bars are? The only one I can make out for sure is the American Defense ribbon.

 

I wonder if the Canadian Black Watch patch may have anything to do with the short-lived 29th Ranger Battalion. If you have his name, maybe you can check a roster if one still exists.

Still wearing the class A with leather belt. So late in the war

This photo was flipped from the original negative I have. The negative shows clearer details. But under very high magnification, the EMAE medal actually has an invasion arrow and one star that I can make out clearly
