Object description

At the American camp at Burton Bradstock, Gunner Paddy Donaldson (from Belfast), a member of a small searchlight unit billeted nearby, tries his hand at the game of 'horseshoes' in the sunshine. His partner for the game, T/4 Johnny Madaro (of 3740 77th Street, Jackson Heights, Long Island, New York) looks on. Behind them, the Nissen huts in which many of the American troops are billeted can be clearly seen. The original caption states that "the two armies soon made friends, visit each other's camps, eat together, play games".
