Title

Photo Collection: 1st Defense Batallion

Description

These photos were taken by Corporal Roland Champlagne while he was stationed on Palmyra, during World War 2. They have been wonderfully preserved by his son, Carl, who generously shared them with us.

Our favorite is of the group playing volleyball in a small clearing on one of the islets.
