German commandos captured in American uniform are prepared for execution, 23 December 1944
Unteroffizier Manfred Pernass, Oberfähnrich Günther Billing, and Gefreiter Wilhelm Schmidt
"They were captured on the 17 December 1944 and had ID cards with the following names ‘Charles W. Lawrence’, ‘Clarence van der Wert’ en ‘George Sensenbach’ but Pernass, Billing, and Schmidt were given a military trial at Henri Chapelle, sentenced to death, and executed by a firing squad on 23-12-1944. Captain J. Eiser (medic) of the 633th Medical Clearing Station pinned the white target patches on their chests, Schmidt’s glasses were taken off before he was shot and fanatic Billing shouted “Long live our Führer Adolf Hitler” at the moment supreme."

A Finnish captain and a 2nd lieutenant are sharing some tobacco and have a chat. Supposedly during the Continuation war of 1941.

Note the variety in uniforms and helmets. The Finns relied on helmets from a number of nations with only smaller numbers being manufactured on Finnish soil. After the outbreak of war in 1941 a number of helmets from other nations began to appear with these including helmets from Italy, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, and Sweden.
It is not uncommon to see in vintage period photos, members of the same unit wearing a mixture of helmets, in fact in some photos one will notice that every soldier has a different helmet type even though in the same unit.

Shirley Slade (class 43-W-5 (4 April 1921 - 26 April 2000).
In 1942, the United States was faced with a severe shortage of pilots, so an experimental program to replace males with female pilots was created — WASP. Shirley was one of about 1,100 chosen. She was trained to fly the Bell P-39 Airacobra and Martin B-26 Marauder. Was on the cover of Life magazine in 1943 at about 23 years old.

38 of the women died in service. None of the WASP women were granted military status until the 1970s.
