Hi,

I've inherited an interesting photo of my father.
The photo was taken in Africa during the 1940's
while he was in the Merchant Marines.

Is anyone able to identify what country it was taken
by the dress of the people in the photo?

You can view the photo here:

Thanks very much for any insight you can share...

Toddamo, unfortunately there is so little to go on...the clothing, the hats? I think you would hav e better luck talking to relatives and also researching where the merchant marines anchored during that year.... good luck!

You should be able to get hold of your father's military record and that will list where and when he was stationed.  Try this site:
