    Caption reads 'On the way to Camp 511. 23-5-21'
    I believe this is the 2nd Bn Upper Silesia.

    It is interesting, Ron, that Millar is depicted wearing a "windup" service dress jacket and other OR's gear so as to reduce his recognition as an officer. It is unusual to see this, if accurate, so early in the war.
