A fantastic Meuse Crossing group for the fighting to the North of Verdun in 1918....
"At 4.20pm the 2nd Battalion, 60th Infantry, and the 2nd Battalion, 61st Infantry, had reached the bank of the river, and the engineers started work on the first bridge. At this moment a tremendous fire of machine guns and artillery burst on the exposed troops with great suddenness. The infantry sought shelter and found it, but the engineers bravely continued at their posts. Shells sank their boats as fast as they could be placed in the water and by 6.00 P. M. no boats were left. "
Here is a description of the action, and photos of the field where it took place...
Group has the Silver star, Victory as well as WW2 Navy Dog Tags and a WW2 service medal plus a small pile od wartime photos of the area (Mostly German Postcards)
