Two boys in Kenya making a trade [[MORE]]i_am_neo_:Some great info courtesy of /u/KaptnBlaubaer

Found a scanned copy of the ad (Imgur), not much more info than was given by OP. Working on finding the actual story.

You could buy it here, but it’s out of stock.


Life Magazine April 13, 1962 : Cover - Liz Taylor and Richard Burton on the set of Cleopatra.
American boy’s adventure with an African tribe, photographer Robert Halmi follows 9-year-old Kevin Gorman with the Masai in Kenya. 


Seems a movie about the events “Visit to a Chief’s Son” was also made in 1974 (12 years later), with the photographer as producer and Kevin Gorman as assistant grip in the camera and electrical department. Here’s a clip from the movie (dubbed to German), if there’s enough interest I could do a translation.

German soldiers relaxing before the battle for Monte Cassino, Italy, 1944 [[MORE]]Zaridana:More images here: http://imgur.com/a/TI3GL

My grandfather was involved in this battle and found a camera on some ground that had been taken from the German forces.  After the war, he developed the film and found these candid shots of German soldiers.  

I’d love to find out some more about these soldiers, for example their regiment/rank.  Perhaps it might even be possible to identify some of the people?  I’d happily give the original photo to a relative if they could prove who they were.
