    WW2 snapshot image of two gruff looking combat veterans taking a smoke break in combat.

    The details are fantastic: Both wear the circular dogs and look like its been several days since they have seen a razor.

    The one on the left has a holstered .45 on his chest.

    The other has a smoke grenade suspended from his pocket and has added some island foliage to camo his helmet. His fingers shows the signs of being in water for an extended period of time.

    On the back is the identification along with a "Passed by Naval Censor" stamp.

      A well deserved Break !!
    8. scottvez scottvez, 8 years ago
      I agree musik-- based on the lack of a shave and equipment, it looks like they just came "off the line" for a short break.

      Scott-
      GREAT photo! I must ask: WHERE did you find this? This would be one of my favorites!
    12. scottvez scottvez, 8 years ago
      Thanks tlmbaran-- I got it from an online seller!

      It looks better in person-- great tones and contrast from a WW2 field shot. Whoever took it did a great job of capturing the moment.
