Jules is correct. Interpreting uniforms is a specialized area of photo analysis and
not found in "fashion" or photo dating books. And there are resources available to
Jewishgenners. I personally have acquired almost every relevant book on identifying
European and American military uniforms >from the 1860s to WWII and those that I
don't have, I know where to find. Old newspapers and magazines >from the war years
are also helpful.

Best to all for a Happy rest of Passover.
