• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

John shared these photos taken by his cousin Eddie.

“My cousin Eddie Bachmann got drafted in May 1944, ended up south of the battle of the Buldge around Hagenau, France, in january 1945 as a mortar man. The 42 Division went on to liberate Dachau in April 1945 and by mid summer were occupation troops in Zell am See, Austria. By that time he was a 6 stripe Sergeant and still only 18. Here are some photos of his buddies and Jeeps. He later became a Catholic priest.”

1941 Photo of Bantam BRC-60s

Not the best quality, but this first photo appeared in the February 13, 1941, issue of the Spokesman Review. The photo shows Bantam BRC-60s laying down a smokescreen. The caption calls the vehicles “midget trucks” and then claims the trucks are called “bugs” by the troops.

1941-02-13-spokesman-review

 

However, by May 7th, 1941, the Spokesman Review was referring to the vehicle not as a truck, but as a command car called a “jeep”.

1964 Photo of Sonny Childers in CJ-3A? on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Features, Old Images

This is a 1964 press photo. Should I know who Sonny Childers is (a quick google search wasn’t much help)? I think Sonny is in a CJ-3A with a 2A windshield. That’s only based on the 3A looking bumper and front frame rail.
