Trying to research details of WWII miltary clothing and weaponry is getting difficult as veterans pass away and memories of those still with us fade.

I remember seeing on an internet site a picture of two men in the uniform of the 101st Airborne, photographed in Bastogne. A number of posters used the photo to point out how the insignia was put on and the uniform worn.

But I managed to find an uncropped version of the photo, showing parked cars, Christmas lights, shoppers, and no snow. It may have been taken in Bastogne, but it was a picture of two re-enactors in uniforms that only vaguely resembled the real thing.
