American soldiers photo album ..dated 1944-46 excellent !

excellent original photo album .
The album belonged to an American GI who served in Europe 25th Dec 1944 -April 26th 1946 .
Thankfully he has listed the places visited and dates so we have an outline of his journey throughout Europe ( mostly Germany ) ...he went through 58 towns within Germany during the war .
There are approx 100 original photos showing devastation to buildings and towns within Germany .Locations include Fulda , Kaiserlautern, saarbrucken, wurzburg, kitzingen and Nurnberg.
There are plenty of photos of US Jeeps , Army Trucks and Gi's in uniform .
There are 5 very haunting photos which were taken by the original owner of the album ..these show scenes from Tittling in Germany ...1200 bodies were uncovered "the work of the Nazis " 4th May 1945 ..the bodies are covered by blankets ..Civilian women and children are pictured in one photo digging graves for the bodies , another photo shows women viewing the bodies .
There are a good number of photos of wrecked Luftwaffe planes with Gi's inspecting ( approx 25 photos )..these are at 2 sites Wurzburg and Kitzingen ...planes include ju88 night fighters , He111, ju87 , Focke Wulf Fw190s including 2 photos with US markings .
Several photos ( approx 12 ) show US military aircraft based at Kitzingen . Some nice nose art pics . One photo shows a US Stuart tank upside down after hitting a landmine . 3 good photos show German Panther panzers knocked out at Kitzingen .
Other photos were taken on the siegfried line , nice images of bunkers and coastal defences at Bremerhaven .
This album offers a fascinating insight into this mans war .

New addition .. Spitfire pilots photo album 600 Squadron

 
Original photograph album which belonged to Pilot G. Webster who appears to have flown with 52 Squadron and then transferred to 600 city of London Squadron. (If anyone is able to provide further details of his service I would love to know more ) . I have also scanned the album pages with captions and also scanned a few newspaper clippings, which relate to his service and an official invitation to the mans parents, when the Queen visited the 600 squadron at Biggin Hill 29th oct 1949.( there are 2 nice photos showing the then Queen walking in front of Spitfires ) .
I believe he served with 52 squadron during late WW2 flying Douglas Dakotas ..and then shortly after WW2 served with 600 squadron circa 1946-1949 ..he may well have also flown Gloster meteor jet fighters . There are 2 photos of Douglas Dakotas in India ...a total of 11 photos showing spitfires and 3 of Gloster Meteors . One nice photo was taken above RAF Thorney island ..runways etc clearly seen ...Also some good photos of uniformed RAF Airmen at rest many of these were taken at Thorney Island .
Locations of photos taken within the album include India, Burma, China, Hong Kong, Tangmere and Thorney Island .
Shortly after the war Webster and others of the 600 hundred took Spitfires over to Cherbourg for an airshow ..a few of the photos relate to this .
A very interesting collection of images
