THREE FRENCH SOLDIERS IN THEIR CAMP IN TRA VINH, VIETNAM

This vintage snapshot photograph features three soldiers in their camp in Tra Vinh, Vietnam. According to the inscription on the reverse of the photograph, this photo was taken in 1948. Tra Vinh is a province in the Mekong Delta. The photograph shows French troops who were engaged in battle with the Viet Minh. The men are engaged in some sort of activity. Are they cooking? Are they purifying water? I’m stumped. Two of the men are smoking cigarettes and all three look serious and exhausted. This snapshot photo measures about 3 1/2 ” x 2 3/8″ and is in very good condition.  SOLD
