Christmas Mass During the Battle of the Bulge – Liege, Belgium 1944


Attempting to track down new material for a fresh blog post is not an easy task…… Especially when my material has generally been languishing unseen in a shoe box since 1945.¬† But occasionally I will come across a photo that I’ve neglected to bring to the light of the internet since it crossed my scanner’s bed.¬† In today’s post, I will dissect a photo taken on Christmas¬† of 1944 in the small town of Neuville en Condroz, Belgium. This is a small village near Liege, Wallone, Belgium and was occupied at the time by an anti-aircraft unit on the front lines of the Bulge. Interestingly, the hood of the Chaplain’s Jeep served as an alter.
