Overall VG. Photos generally clear & without significant wear: VG - VG+. Item #44687

A visual record of a unidentified soldier's Korean service, and while, as expected, many are 'buddy' shots [e,g, "Xmas 1952"], there is also a goodly percentage of location [e.g., "Korean Festival" & "Train Station in Seoul"] & service related images [e.g., a number of photographs show Corsair aircraft & "Inside a Sabre Jet"], as well as some action images ["Accident on the way to Seoul. July 1952" and "Loading Planes with Bombs"].

A nice primary visual source documenting one man's tour in Korea during 1952.

Price: $375.00
