Field Camp, Belgium/Holland, October, 1944

"Herb - What a guy!"
(Hersh adopted the name Herb during the first part of his military tour.)
Typical bivouac (temporary camp) probably in Belgium or Holland, October, 1944
Over field latrine. "The first thing we gud when we moved in."
Lt. Doyle. Notice the field surrounded by hedgerows in the background. Each field held a company nicely with plenty of room for sports and excercise.
