New Photos from the War Years

Posted: September 15, 2016 in Men of the 111th Ordnance Company, Wales 1943-44

We have received a new batch of photos from Pat Macchiarolo, daughter of 111th soldier Bob Raymer, whose big friendly smile we’ve seen in previous posts. A while back, Pat’s sister discovered more of their dad’s old photos and negatives. Pat had the negatives developed and scanned and sent everything along to us. Some of the photos show men who weren’t named. If anyone can identify a father or grandfather here, please write to the blog and let us know, and we will add the name.

(Try clicking on the photo to see a larger version–this used to work, but it didn’t work for me just now; write to me if you’d like to see a larger image.)

Thanks very much, Pat!

    HI, I’M RUNNING LATE TONIGHT, I JUST RAN THROUGH THE PICS. THE ONES WITH THE NAMES I REMEMBER. THE OTHERS I’M NOT TOO SURE BUT THEY DO LOOK FAMILIAR ….SORRY TO SAY BUT MY SUPER BRAIN JUST TOOK A STEP BACK. WHEN I THINK OF A NAME AND IT DOESN’T COME QUICK IT USUALLY DOES A MINUTE OR TWO LATER. FATHER TIME IS CATCHING UP TO ME FAST. TODAY I HAD A TOOTH GIVE OUT SO NOW I HAVE TO HAVE IT PULLED AND NEW TOOTH ADDED TO THE PARTIAL. HERE I THOUGHT I WAS IN MY GOLDEN YEARS…..THANKS FOR SENDING THE PICS, THEY BROUGHT BACK MANY A MEMORY. KEEP IN TOUCH……………….JOHN R

      Thanks, John. If anything does come back, let us know. We had a call today from your former commanding officer, Captain Art Brooks. He is also looking at the pictures, but no word yet. He will be 99 next month. Makes you look like a baby! He and his wife of 70 years are doing well in NY State.
