WWII American Soldier's Album Mostly Devoted to Life and Scenes in India and Titled "Half Way Round the World with Remington"
- Approximatley 170 photos plus several illustrations cut from unknown sources. Photos are almost all in corner mounts and generally measure approximately 11 x 6cm. or smaller. Quality of the photos varies but generally clear with decent detail. Most photos or groups of photos have some sort of captioning or identifying article nearby. A few album leaves are detached and there are missing photos here and there. Scuffed oblong tied album with faux reptilian patterning (approximately 30 x 22cm.). Our soldier says he was inducted in Sept. 1942, arrived in Algeria in Nov. 1943 (about 14 photos) and was sent on to India early in 1944 and was mostly there until he left for the U.S in June 1945. Several photos were taken in and around Karagapur and then at Calcutta, followed by a two month furlough (spent at a rest camp in Raniket and at a hospital in New Delhi with "yellow jaundice" and an enthusiastic visit to the Taj Mahal). One detached album leaf, containing 9 photos of modest quality, is titled "over the Hump into China" on one side and "Building airfields in China" on the other. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
