388th Bomb Group Artist in England 1944 – Alva Villamor Alegre


From the depths of my collection comes a series of amazing negatives taken by a member of the 388th Bomb Group stationed at Knettishall England in 1944.  I have over 300 images from this collection and will slowly be posting them over the next few months.  Keep checking back for updates.  The medium-sized negatives are in immaculate condition and came to me rather inexpensively from an eBay auction. Enjoy!

Alegre was a Phillipino born artist who passed away in the early 1950s at the early age of 40.  I one day hope to find a piece of his art!
