The Liberation of Nancy, France
This photo was taken shortly after the liberation of the city of Nancy, France, on Sept. 15, 1944. The emblem on the helmet of the officer on the right indicates that he is probably a Major or a Lieutenant Colonel. It was taken in the area of Place Thiers near the Hotel Thiers which was the 134th Infantry Regiment's Command Post. This Officer is possibly Lt. Colonel Alford C Boatman and the soldier on the left with the maps may be Corporal John Shively. Corporal Shively was later seriously wounded in action on January 5, 1945 and died of his wounds. Thanks to Sebastien Bonhomme for this picture. He lives near Nancy, France. (Photo courtesy of the 35th Infantry Division Association at www.coulhart.com/134/index.htm)
