Hello, please take a look at this picture. These - in my opinion - must be soldiers of US 17th AB Div. The M1943 field jacket, the US flag on the right arm, the helmets with first aid packet all suggest this. The vegetation is still without leaves - typical for Varsity pictures. So this could be March 1945. What makes me suspicious is the landscape in the background - is it a bit too hilly for the Wesel area. The LZ and DZ and the the area around them is all flat - with some rare exceptions. Also the horizon line looks as if somebody messed with this picture - cut something off maybe?. From Wesel 17 Ab Div went on in the direction of Muenster - the landscape is very flat between Wesel and Muenster. After Muenster I believe they went on to help mop up and herd together German Army Group B in the Ruhr district - that was in April. In parts of the Ruhr district (around Essen and in the direction of Duesseldorf) the landscape is hilly.
