THE C. R. SMITH COLLECTION

One of the way things are -- and won't ever change -- is that most people, most of the time, do not write the names of the faces who appear in their photographs. Nor do they think it necessary to write where the photographs were taken. Worst of all, they don't even write their own names when they appear in a photo -- that would be silly and egotistical, wouldn't it? Well, no, it would be a service to the next generation. The years go by, and they forget - or worse, the photographs become orphans when they die, set adrift in a world that no longer remembers the unidentified, and now unidentifiable faces. Such were a number of images which came into our possession via Margie Linton, long-time stalwart of the 503d PRCT Association of WWII Inc. Until we can get someone to have an identification session with this collection we can only guess at most of them.  At least we know that this is C. R. Smith's collection -- though whether he might be pictured here, we don't know. Amongst these images, we have only attained three confirmed identifications, Ted Essig, Clyde Morr and Frank Barborich, all of "A" Company.
