Harold Palmer Album

The Dallas reunion in June 2009 provided a major contribution to the web site. Nettie Palmer, wife of Harold Palmer, has been attending 300th reunions in Dallas for several years with her son Adrian Lopez from California. This year, she brought with her a small metal box filled with photographs of the 300th taken during the campaign in Europe. The small photographs, about 2 x 2 inches, are in excellent condition. Many are of the men of the 300th, their equipment, destroyed towns, disabled German tanks and planes and American gliders. The photos were scanned at the reunion and returned safely to Nettie. Our tanks to Nettie for sharing these for the web site.
