There are few troops left now in the “Omaha” and “Utah” beach areas which once swarmed with soldiers. The little Normandy towns look almost deserted and only an occasional GI is seen on the streets. Normandy once more belongs to the Normans. About the only troops left are prison camp personnel, nospua. workers and crews whose job is to salvage as much ammunitior and equipment as possible fron the fields. The cleanup job has fallen to tin 17th ordnance battalion commandec by Lt. Col. Lloyd Littlefield Springfield, Mass. “We're pretty much of an odd ity ” Littlefield said. “We did ; cleanup job in England. Gatherin' up all the ammunition and left over equipment and now we ari doing the same job in Normandy.’ He estimated some 47,000 topi of ammunition still were left on thi beaches and his battalion is shipp ing about 1,200 tons daily to thi United States and Pacific. Much of tiie ammunition has to be reboxed. Right now Littlefield and his men are sweating out the removal of 400 tons of nitroglycerine which is stacked in one field—enough ex plosive to blow out a large chunk of Normandy if anything goes hay wire. In cleaning up ammunitions dumps Littlefield’s men have dis covered an amazing amount o: equipment worth many thousands i of dollars which was abandoned ii the hedgerows as the units pullet out to other areas. -V • DOLLARS HANG ON A TREE GILLETTE, Wyo., May 26.—<U.F . —Harold Mankin, 11, saw a leathe 1 pouch hanging from a tree, am : decided it would be good leather ti : make a sling shot.
