Title

Soldier Study Sketches

Description

14th NAA Command - WWII Drawings.
Pencil sketches of soldiers in varying states of completion; man with glasses squatting, a face, foot and leg with shoe and a back view of a soldier.
Maurice described the squatting man as a prisoner of war, saying, "We went to breakfast one day and there was a line. We looked at the end of the line and there was a Japanese soldier waiting to get fed so we took him as a prisoner of war and we built a little barbed wire enclosure where we kept him. Every morning as we walked by to get breakfast he would say "ohio" which was what they named him."
Verso: "Winter 1945/1946."
