A nice grouping of material from Pvt. Willis Hill, an M.P. serving with the 508 Para. Inf'y Reg. In Germany during the war and during the occupation. Included are about 120 photographs, most 2" x 2" candid images of street scenes, bombed-out buildings, fellow soldiers, barracks, tank transports, a wrecked truck, wrecked ships at Le Havre, etc. Also included are about a dozen photos of various young ladies, a few identified as "mein frowe[sic]", despite strict rules against fraternization. Also included is a copy of Hill's M.P. graduation certificate, his "MP" armband and an empty scrapbook. Overall very good.
