The way things have been going in the Belgian Army lately, I might just move over to France and take everything with me.... How about a new museum in or near St Lo??? :think:

Hi Cousin ;) , First of all: Your collection is just awesome :blink: I am just in amazement and never bored to see it! Just amazing! you have an ETO campaign museum at home for sure!!

 

Just let me add those photos of LTC harold A Cassel from HQ 116th. The first photo shows the 116th staff prior to D-Day (probably a few weekss before). LTC H. Cassel is standing left from Colonel Canham, Commanding Off 116th.

Not so bad idea! And if we are a little tired after a few months, we can ask Hermann Hist to take care of our collections :lol: Sure you and Bruno will be Millionnaires...

Yes Johan, most of them have been Id'ed. I got this copy from the officer far right, Captain Bob Walker (then Lieutenant). Will look in my files to get other names.
