Clarence E. (Buster) Campbell - Photographs
Buster Campbell mailed me several photos from his service in the 10th Mountain Division. I made copies of the following. The ID numbers are used in my files. (Buster was Clarence's nickname in the service. He legally changed his last name from Crane to Campbell.)
- 96 - Master Sgt. Clarence E. (Buster) Campbell skis in full dress ski trooper's uniform at Cooper Hill, Tennessee Pass, near Camp Hale, Colorado, May 8, 1944, prior to the 1st National Military Ski Race. Buster notes: "This is called traverse running downhill on skis with light combat pack (35 lbs)."
- 97 - Master Sgt. C.E. Campbell poses one-half hour after winning the twenty mile U.S. Military Ski Race at Tennessee Pass, Colorado, May 14, 1944. Buster notes: "The skis used in the race were regular Army-issue downhill skis with metal edges and cable bindings, not lightweight skis made for cross-country racing."
- 98 - Staff Sgt. Clarence Crane (Campbell), part of 87th Infantry Regiment, performing a jump turn, Mt Rainier in the background, winter of 1941-42.
- 99 - 87th Mountain Infantry on parade wearing ski uniforms at Camp Hale, Colorado, May 1943.
- 100 - Clarence Campbell (front center), James Lill (right), Dick Rocker (left) and Strand (back center) apply first aid to a fracture of the lower tibia. Buster notes: "This was my medical squad in action at Tennessee Pass, Colorado, April 1944. We were treating an actual fracture."
