Preserving amatuer WWII photos


If you have seen our blog before, you know that we just love old  “stuff”!  In our many auctions and moves and relocations, we have been carting around this one box with old papers in it.  We have been carting it around for a couple of years now!  Recently, while going thru some things we started examining this box of “stuff”.  In our minds, we struck gold.  We found an envelope which contained several old negatives.  upon examining them we found out they are shots from Europe during WWII!

I have no idea who these gentlemen are, but I am familiar with what they went thru and what they were fighting for!  I want to share these images as a way of honoring not only these men, but all men and women who have fought on any side of any war!  War is such a terrible thing and while necessary sometimes, it is never something to be taken lightly!  I hope you enjoy these photos, I wish I could give you more information on them but everyone in them is probably passed on by now.

  1. Nice reading about you

    Thanks for visiting my blog. Be in touch. Browse through the category sections, I feel you may find something of your interest.

    Happy New Year !!!!!!! and best wishes for you in 2014 🙂

  2. It does look like it would have been around the time of the liberation of Holland. The man who appears most often probably owned the photos. I would like to think all of these young men/boys made it home safely and lived to a ripe old age.

Let me know what you think?
