Taking Point

By KevSB
1944 Us Mortar platoon from 9th Infantry Division take a few minutes to rest and take stock of there situation, Taken at the festival of forties this weekend, first time id met these guys and a pleasure to work with them. What I liked about this picture is its timeless, Uniforms change as do guns but this could be a scene from so many periods.

Well caught...reminds me of my WW2 re-enacting days some 20 years ago!

I would suggest softening the sharpness as photo looks too sharp for the era it portrays, otherwise really well doneSmile
