Wallpaper from 1945 Includes a Jeep

Vic surprised me with an unusual story today.

He writes, “We have an historic home (1827) where there was a fire in 1945. Following that event the home underwent some serious refurbishing. Fast forward to 2011 and my wife decided to strip the wallpaper from our bedroom – four layers as it turned out. The final layer was a blue-gray with a patriotic theme – the Statue of Liberty with a B-24 flying past and a battleship. The best part is the Jeep with a field piece.”

Due to his wife’s heroic efforts, several pieces of wallpaper showing the jeep were saved, a couple of which Vic said he will send my direction (thanks!). He included this image of jeep and artillery.
