A day to remember


The first one with call outs was taken as part of a
panorama in late winter of '53 from OP Howe.

 

This shot was one made with the 40" lens from OP Howe of OP Harry.  You can see lots of detail including three or four men standing on the little ridge just left of center at the bottom of the frame.  This is essentially un-cropped, so it gives you an idea of the reach of that lens.

This picture shows the 15th Regiment Command Post.

This annotated photo was made on June 15th by our photo officer Lt. Dan Carson, who was flying in an L-19 that day.  All the pictures were classified after being processed but I saved a print because I am in it as is my partner Frank Conger. On the original print you can see two dots in the tank dugout.

The slide of OP Harry was taken from OP Howe.
 I think it was about 1,900 yds from the top of Harry.
This was taken with a 50mm lens

 

 


The closer shot was taken with a 135mm lens which was new.  I had bought it from Balcom mail order house.  I shot a lot of  pictures with it before I realized that the lens was not synchronized with the Leica rangefinder.  Let's just say that they are softer than I would have liked!  (Can't go back for retakes,  thank God!)  That is a Chinese round hitting the right flank of OP Harry the afternoon of June 15,1953.
