Okay here we go:

On the first picture we have left to right:

Rear Admiral Ruthven E. Libby, US Navy
Vice Admiral C. Turner Joy, US Navy
Colonel Don O. Darrow, US Air Force
Lieutenant Colonel Lawrence G. Hill, US Army

The picture is taken at a meeting in the Musanni United Nations Base Camp. Date unknown to me.

The second picture is very blurred, but I think that the US four star general is James Alward Van Fleet, Commanding General 8th Army. At least it is him that we have on the third picture no doubt.

On the last picture we have left to right:

Brigadier General Courtney Whitney, US Army, Government Section US Far East Command (We can only see his arm!)
Brigadier General Edwin K. Wright, US Army, Operations Officer to MacArthur
Rear Admiral James H. Doyle, US Navy, Commander Task Force 90
General of the Army Douglas MacArthur, US Army, CinC Far East Command
Major General Edward M. Almond, US Army, Commanding General X Corps

The picture is taken on the 15th September 1950. The are watching the shelling prior to the landing at Inchon.

I don't have another a larger picture but if you do a google image search on: whitney, almond and macarthur you will get several hits showing the same occasion.

Request for Identification

Post by Jack Nisley » 14 Jul 2007 01:20

Went to the Fort McPherson Library, found a history of the 3rd Infantry Division in World War II with a picture of Major General Anderson, can confirm that that is the correct ID in my last post.

For ttvon: Regarding your private message, I agree that it is Harmon. The 2nd Armoured Division, which Harmon commanded at that time, was also inspected by Roosevelt on the same day as the 3rd Infantry.

The Major General in the last picture with Darlan should be Charles W. Ryder, Commanding General of the 34th Infantry Division, whose "Red Bull" shoulder patch can be seen on his uniform.

The Major General in the first picture with the Russians has a Vth Corps emblem on his helmet, but I can't identify him yet.

Thank you for your help.
I've been looking about Vth Corps and I've found a general that can be our man Major General Charles Hunter Gerhardt. Here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_H._Gerhardt you can see a picture of Gerhardt and some info, he commanded the 29th Infantry Division.

I am wondering whether the Vice Air Marshal on the picture "4 copia.jpg" is James Robb.
