COLLECTION OF PHOTOS AND FLIGHT CAP FROM MAN IN THE USMC WWII
A collection of about 150 photos that appear to have belonged to Samuel Lee McClaren (1920-1970) from when he was in the USMC during WWII. There are forty-six larger, mostly 8” x 10” photos, with some 5” x 7”pictures of him in uniform, mostly posing by a plane. There are some duplicates with about 35 being different shots. In these photos he is wearing a flight cap and that flight cap is in this collection as well. There are also about twenty personal snapshots and another 85 or so mostly commercial snapshots that show several dead Japanese soldiers and native tribes in the South Pacific. One of these show a woman holding a sign for Bougainville and another photo shows a man standing by a sign for the 77th Sea Bees General Constructors. Only a few photos have identifications written on the verso, though it is quite an interesting collection from a proud Marine.
