    Mark,

    I’ve seen that photo before. One caption related to it suggested it was from Jan 1, 1939 (Getty), which we all know is untrue. So, that calls into question the rest of the text which reads, “Chinese soldiers and labourers carry parts of an American leased Jeep over mountain trails for re-assembly on the repaired section of the Burma Road in China.”

    There’s another example (possible followup photo) here: http://avax.news/pictures/17025

    There are a few more jeep photos (and other cool Burma photos) on this page. I assume all the photos were part of a NatGeo article: http://www.cbi-theater.com/national_geographic/land_route.html

    Sorry, I should have stated the Buffalo crossing sign was probably the 92nd Infantry. There nickname was The Buffalo soldiers.

    The marking on the carried Jeep I believe is the 1st Air Group that was active in Burma and China in the latter part of 1943 thru 1945….
