In Germany after VE-Day (Occupation Troops)

    I believe this group of pictures comes from when they were stationed in Germecode, Germany after VE-Day . Grouped by developer markings and common buildings and Dad's labels, they convey a common theme showing a more relaxed atmosphere with USO shows coming in and some dress uniforms, not many helmets on. Germecode was very near Ershausen, were they are shown being stationed on 5th Armored maps.
