The World War II Photo of the Week
for 29 October 2001
|Captured Dental Equipment ...
A U.S. Civil Affairs team, including a combat medical doctor, investigate an abandoned German's dental office in Rennes, France. The officer with the armband is identified as LTC Roswell Brown, Buffalo, NY. He is holding a theater-made swagger stick in one hand and a German lexicon in the other, apparently translating the contents of the can being held by Corporal Charles Boardman, Miami, FL. At the far left, Captain Ralph Luebbers, Burlington, IA, looks on. Dated August 21, 1944, the photo is from the Webmaster's collection.
