This is just a picture blog of random ads ads and pictures which appeared in newspapers during WWII.

In this image provided by the Army Press Relations, although Colonel Floyd E. Dunn, Sioux City, Iowa knows his jungle warfare, when it comes to the tenor saxophone, he gives in to the expert coaching of band leader Corporal Leon D. Weills of West Sommerville, Massachusetts. It all came about when musical-minded GI’s of the Americal division decided to entertain men on the fighting outposts in the South Pacific with probing jive on Oct. 14, 1944. With instruments provided by the Special Service Office, the combat soldiers journeyed through 5000 yards of jungle to put on the show. From left to right the men are: Front row – Pvt. Robert A. Silverdrist, Chicago, Ill.; Cpl. Leon D. Wells, West Sommerville, Mass.; Col. Floyd E. Dunn, Sioux City, Iowa; Pvt. Erric V. Carlson, Tanana, Alaska; Pfc. Harold D. Fisher, Youngstown, Ohio; Pvt. George Zito, Los Angeles, Calif.; Pvt. Perry T. Austin, Kenniwick, Wash.; row two – Pfc. Ben A. Cuatto, Salt Lake City, Utah; Pvt. Ralph C. Kagle, Fornfelt, Mo.; Pfc. Jack A.
