Alfred Miraglia (from New York) and Corporal John R Jones (from Longmont, Colorado) look on as Betty and Roger Edmonds (children of the ex-Mayor of Winchester) show off their pet tortoise. The GIs have been taking tea with the family in the sunny garden of their home in Winchester. The original caption states that the Edmonds' children, Roger and Betty, were invited to the US as guests of the Mayor of Winchester, Virginia, and received the later part of their education there.
