WWII U. S. Army Engineer's Photo Archive and Personal Memorabilia
Lot Details & Additional Photographs
Assembled by 2nd Lt. (later Major) Pehr B. Moller, 1057th Engineer (Port) Construction & Repair Group, beginning in 1943. After training at Fort Screven, Georgia and at Camp Gordon Johnston, Florida, Moller shipped out for Europe and was tasked to demolish damaged bridges and erect new ones where needed. His work took him through France and Germany and on to the Far East. Included here is a rather remarkable trove of photographs, medals, insignia, patches, and uniform buttons. Highlights include the following items: ten personal snapshots from Camp Gordon Johnston, many of which identify the subjects; (66) photographic prints on eleven sheets depicting activities of the 1057th from stateside training to immediate postwar Germany; several official photographic prints, one of which features singer Dinah Shore en route to France; seven service medals; campaign and service ribbons; four customized cigarette lighters; dog tags; numerous Corps of Engineer uniform buttons; insignia; belt plates; enamel pins; patches; 1943 and 1952 military identification.

Collection of Mr. & Mrs. Moller, Durham, NC
