Grouping named to Charles Robert Whitcomb

The items listed in this grouping were donated by the Cleveland Grays Armory Museum to the 83rd Infantry Division Association on the 2017 Reunion in Cleveland, Ohio and given in my care for adding to my collection. Looking at all the items in the grouping it is clear the items belonged to Mr. Charles Robert Whitcomb of Ohio, who served with Company F of the 329th Infantry Regiment.

Top piece of this grouping is a very nice Photo Album with over 280 black and white photos of the men of Company F, 329th Regiment. Appears to be in the US and taken during basic training at Camp Atterbury, the Tennessee Maneuvers of 1943 and Camp Breckinridge. Most of the photo's are identified what makes this a great piece of history. In front of the album, there is a large list of names for the men of F/329.
