Photo taken by B.R. van Wulfften Palthe as he crossed the Rhine with 152 Brig. Shows a "Duck" crossing the Rhine some distance from the "Buffalo" in which Palthe crossed. The "Duck" (DUKW) was an six-wheeled amphibious vehicle which had no mounted guns. This photo is part of a series with the full annotation "And here we go in the Buffalo, led by the skipper, to Rees, with many other Ducks who, quite far apart, also are crossing to the eastern shore."
