    Default World War II Cigarette Ad

    Hey guys. Here's that cigarette ad from D-Day that I mention in the D-Day article I posted. I apologize for taking so long. Here's a link to the article first for those who haven't read it:

    http://www.theconstrainedvision.com/beach.html

    Here are links to the ad. It would probably be best to save the file then zoom in as it gets clearer after zooming. On the top half is the 299th Engineers Combat Battalion. My grandfather is the third in the middle cluster hitting the beach.

    On the bottom is some advertising and some actors. It's still really neat to see even though it's fake.

    The picture was taken during training in Fort Pierce, FL in 1943.
