In the sunshine at the American camp at Burton Bradstock, Sergeant James F Hokanson (of 1062 McLemore, Memphis, Tennessee) explains how to play the game of 'horseshoes' to soldiers of a British searchlight unit billeted nearby. The original caption states that "the two armies soon made friends, visit each other's camps, eat together, play games".
