Alfred Regenburg’s Bronze Star Medal Citation

Normandy Scrapbook (95th Infantry Divison)

Amazing and unique WW2 scrapbook. The book covers a the veteran, Private Lewis Roland Blaney’s induction into the army and into the 95th Infantry Divison. Mr. Blaney landed with Patton’s Army on Normandy June 7th, 1944 (D-Day Plus 1) and served in Europe until March 1945. The book also covers this period.

A map is included where the veteran has traced his route through Europe. A lot of different items are in this book, including several photographs, newspapers, patches, army forms from General Patton and General Bradley, a small German Nazi flag, a Safe Conduct pass from General Eisenhower, a Special Orders pamphlet from Bradley on American-German Relations and much, much more.

The state of the scrapbook is fragile. The back and cover is torn and many pages are torn and loose. Nevertheless, this is a truly magnificent piece of personal war history.
