This printing is lousy, Isn't it. Taken after a fine "C" ration dinner.

Leroy Barnes
See what happened to Barnes when Hinton caught him off guard? Inside - bad lighting all these pictures were made with my camera and I printed them.
Donarell R. Green
Barnes made this picture inside, but the light wasn't right.
Marvin M. Fisk - Dental Officer
Somewhere in India.
Clarence D.Hinton 1st. Lt. M.C.
Hinton by Barnes.
The bad lighting caught him just right. This is probably the best way to make his picture.
Of course this is Tweed.
Note the CBI emblem on right shoulder.
This Captain George Marshall former dental officer 383rd. Taken at Tagap Burma just before the departure of the 383rd. July 22nd 45.

Abe Washington - It was both cold and windy.
He had to hold the railing to keep from falling.
May 18 - 1945 - This is from an old roll I made last december. The guy is Lt. Shapiro, dental officer where I was last december. The place is the Burmese English Hospital I told you about. that I ran while their doctor wa on leave. You can see the size of the dog - note the one behind him!
