One World War II photograph album containing more than 180 b/w photos, with captions. Apparently the album of a wry U.S. soldier
and member of a finance group (some images indicating 3rd and 4th Platoons, Co. D), self-described as the "Fighting Finance"
and "Finance Commandos." Includes images of soldiers in the unit and military camp life, as well as many views of eastern
New Guinea, local people and village scenes. Also photos of earlier training at Fort Benjamin Harrison, Indiana and, after
New Guinea, views of Indonesia (Biak), Morotai Island, Philippines (mainly war-damaged buildings in Manila), the voyage home,
and stateside return back to San Francisco.
