Col Raff

am 300 yd left road top hill.

Enemy Many auto wpns. Have been murdering landing glidermen. Here is one we salvaged. Now have about 1 sq left . enemy est 2 sq. position

not too good. Sorry about other men



The above photo is of a note folded neatly in Claude Cuellar's photo album. I've translated as well as I can. I can only assume that the gliderman carrying the note to Col Raff was captured. That would account for the note being placed in a German officer's photo album. A souvenir.
