2ID Museum WWII Part 3
This is a closeup of the Indianhead on the WWII flag.
This is a flag made by a French boy and presented to a member of the division's engineer battalion upon liberation.
This flag was made by American prisoners held at Stalag VIIIA in Gorlitz, Germany and was used in the first formal funeral allowed by the Germans in January 1945. A German guard was preparing to shoot into the funeral group until a major stopped him. The major wanted to take a photograph for propaganda purposes.
