The following photographs were in a collection purchased by Tim Malone from e-Bay and were identified as being from the 263d Engineer Combat Battalion.   None of the individuals in the photos were
identified.  From the uniforms and backgrounds I am making the assumption that these photos were made during the combat period of the 263d Engineer Combat Battalion-
