|Road-Marking Patrol ...
A group of 8th Division MPs gather around a jeep for a briefing prior to embarking on a road-marking patrol. Note that the
8th Army patches on the MPs at the extreme right have been censored out, and an M1A1 Thompson submachinegun with magazines taped fore and aft is leaning on the dashboard of the jeep at left. The location is Brest, France, and the date is 28 August 1944. Photo from the Webmaster's collection.
