Unknown World War 2 soldiers
One of a batch of World War 2 images, mainly medium format transparencies. This is one of thirteen images within the larger collection that has a reference number prefixed 'BM' (and with an alternative seemingly earlier 'E' prefix number). All these BM images appear to have been taken in the Mediterranean region, either in North Africa or through to the Middle East (all location suggestions very welcome). Ref BM 553 (or E 755) I suspect all these images were taken in late 1940.
