Frank L. Morris, Jr., belonged to the 502nd Combat M.P. Battalion. In December 1943 he was with the 5303rd Composit Unit which was attached to the Chinese Army.
The collection consists of one photograph, taken in Burma in December 1943 by a war correspondent. It shows the American soldier Frank L. Morris, Jr., sharing cigarettes with Kachin tribesmen in Shingbwiyang, Burma. The photo was used in April 1944 as part of a leaflet which was dropped over Burmese villages as a strategy to persuade tribes to cooperate with the Allies instead of with the Japanese.
