    All the pictures supposedly taken from the film found on a luxembourgish hillside are official Signal Corps photographs and can be found in Andy Rawson's “Images of War - Battle of the Bulge - Rare photographs from wartime archives” on pages 11, 48, 55, 57 and 92!
    The whole article was a fraud written to pull at people's heartstrings.

    It's amazing that the camera and more so the film survived just buried in debris and exposed to the elements for all that time.
    Kudos to the people who found it and took the time and effort to conserve what was there. The images could have so easily been lost for the rest of time.

    where are you quoting from Mr. Flibble ?

    If the story is indeed fraudulent, or at the very least if the photographs are misattributed, it seems a shame to perpetuate it here.

    Ok, folks, please keep it to the photographic issue at hand and take the debate about the war to a WWII forum, of which I am sure there are many.

    All images are definitely from the Signal Corps archives, not from a recently recovered camera, some appeared in print in a book concerning the 80th Infantry Division back in 2008. (see my complete quote).

    Same thing happened with an article by the ARC a few weeks ago. Where they showed a photo of 'ARC ladies jumping off a landing craft in Normandy 1944".....except that it was Southern France in January 1945...

    I also see that the site that the petapixel article linked to has removed the pages about the find (or "find")

    Most of the films I get to salvage from cameras stored on normal temperate and dry UK houses don't unwind. So all I can develope is the portion of film in the camera gate.

    And it is the norm with a folder that you wind on after exposure... so not had many image recoveries.

    Indeed if you drop the camera into salt or fresh water get the film out of camera immediately if it is your camera.

    Mr Fibble it turns out you were right

    They were indeed a hoax according to this ....

    A few days after posting the article, our Editor-in-Chief began receiving emails from concerned readers notifying us that the story was fabricated and that they had seen these photos before. Unable to confirm anything at the time, we kept our eye on it, reaching out to a number of people in regards to the situation.
